    Rarely Seen Knight Grand Cross with Breast Star

    Uncertified Knight Grand Cross with Breast Star. Medcalf-Russell 2RO-4. The Royal Order of Kalakaua I was established on September 28, 1875 to commemorate his election as king on February 12, 1874. The order was awarded in a superior class (Knight Grand Cross with Collar) and four regular classes (Knight Grand Cross, Knight Grand Officer, Commander, and Companion). The present example is similar to the left photograph on page 154 of the Second Edition of Hawaiian Money by Medcalf and Russell, except the crown is not present, and instead the order is backed by a breast star. The order is 3 1/2 inches in diameter and has a large pin on the back. Inside the order is the inscription No 46/KRETLY/PALAIS-ROYAL/PARIS. The order has a single spot of verdigris on the breast star and minor chipping and toning on the Maltese cross. A folded gold-colored ribbon accompanies and has the dimensions 26mm x 265mm. (NGC ID# 3PFA, PCGS# 661874)
