Condition: evidence of wear, Good Very Fine.

The Order of St Alexander was instituted on 25 December 1881 to be awarded to both military and civilians. The date ‘19 February 1878’ is effectively that of the independence of the principality of Bulgaria from Ottoman rule. This version of the insignia dates from after the declaration of the Kingdom in 1908. The Order was suppressed in 1944 and is relatively rare in the more senior classes.
