PRUSSIA – STICKPIN – ORDEN POUR le MÉRITE – ORIGINAL PRESENTATION CASESKU: 28-173
$2,295.00Beautifully detailed stickpin. Its PLM is quite small and discreet, measuring ¼” x ¼.” Its enamel work is exceptionally handsome. The blue arms are lovely, and its gold “Pour le Mérite” lettering and crown are eye-catching and easily discernible. The detailing of its four eagles is exceptional. The PLM itself is attached to a gold-toned pin that measures 2″ in length. The pin is knurled. I see no signs of a maker’s hallmark, but it is evident that a very skilled jeweler produced this amazingly small and faithfully produced stickpin. It displays no hallmarks for gold content, but the stickpin certainly has that “look.” I will not crawl out on a limb to unequivocally state it is made of gold, but my watery old eyes tell me that it IS so.
