1844-1866 Long Service decoration for Officers - 25 years (Onderscheidingsteken voor eervolle langdurige dienst als officier).

1940 Royal Dutch Army, 5th Division medal
1940 Royal Dutch Army, 5th Division medal for completing one of the day marches. Significant is fact that Germany invaded The Netherlands in 1940 and put an end to any military marches.

Dutch Silver Cross 1813-1815 (Zilveren Herdenkingskruis 1813-1815)
Silver Cross 1813-1815 (Zilveren Herdenkingskruis 1813-1815). Such crosses were awarded to veterans of the Napoleonic Wars, period when Netherlands were being re-shaped again. Crosses are of exceptional rarity on the market, especially in North America. Silver 5-armed cross. All original issues were well hallmarked by maker 'P.Z' and Dutch silver 1814 purity mark for .833 silver. In addition to these two marks, there is another one - French import mark for the 'undetermined' origin silver. This mark is in form of a standing swan within oval frame and was used since 1893 (for items coming into France). Beautiful old cotton/silk moire ribbon is arranged in 'Austrian' tri-fold style. Majority of original silver frosting remains. Cross showing light wear and age. Overall condition is very good and better. Exact number of crosses awarded is not known but is believed to be less then 5000, far cry from over 30 000 Dutch troops fighting during Napoleonic Wars. This would make for a 'true' gem in one's collection - don't miss this if you collect that period. 35mm x 37mm. Item # Ne-35 *SOLD*

WW2 era Order of Orange-Nassau. Officer, Portuguese manufacture.
WW2 era Order of Orange-Nassau. Officer, Portuguese manufacture. During WW2 most insignia were made in Portugal for the Dutch Crown. Company of Casa das Condecorações Hélder Cunha in Lisbon made most that we are aware off. Some sources indicate that there were some items sub-contracted but there is little proof of that. Seems suspension was fixed as some point but well done and not detractive. Portuguese badges are easily recognized by hand chased trim of the arms of the cross and outer borders of the center medallion. Also, inscriptions are textured with horizontal lines. Lion has somewhat different appearance than Dutch made pieces. Gilding is quite easy to notice, hence it is Officer class. Ribbon appears to be original (compared to other Portuguese-made examples we have) but is missing the rosette. 39mm wide. It is very hard to find one of these 1940-45 examples. Appears to be silver, no markings are apparent (consistant with others we've examined). Item # Ne-34  *SOLD*

1832 Siege of Citadel of Antwerp commemorative medal. Also known as The Citadel Medal. (Antwerpsche Medaille 1832)
1832 Siege of Citadel of Antwerp commemorative medal. Also known as The Citadel Medal.  (Antwerpsche Medaille 1832). During the 1830 Belgian War of Independence, the city of Antwerp was captured by Belgian insurgents. However, the Citadel continued to be held by the Dutch garrison under General Chassé. Much damage was inflicted to city due to periodic bombardment by the defenders. Amazingly, the old general held out for more than a year. Finally, aided by the Royal Navy, the French began a close siege of the Citadel in November of 1832. By the end of December, Chassé had to give it up. He surrendered with the honours of War, and was later promoted to General of Infantry. Medal was approved in 1833. All taking part in defence of the Citadel were eligible (officers and soldiers). All things considered, this medal is quite rare indeed. Darkened bronze medal of 30mm in diameter. 3mm thick. Obverse of Citadel's outline, inscribed: 'Citadel Van Antwerpen'.
