Original Post WW2 1947 Hallmarked Military Order of Italy Neck Order.
This Order was originally known as the Military Order of Savoy, which was instituted by King Victor Emmanuel I in 1815. It was revised and re-instituted in 1947 as the Military Order of Italy by the President of the Italian Republic, Luigi Einaudi.
This Order is currently the highest military decoration within the Italian Republic, and it is conferred upon individual Italian citizens and members of the Italian Armed Forces in recognition of valorous and skilful wartime actions. It may also be awarded posthumously, in peacetime, and to foreigners who have rendered service to Italy in wartime. Despite being post ww2 it’s a nice place holder considering how pricey the earlier variant can be.
