Silver gilt, enamels. Measures 88.2 mm in height, 87.9 mm in width; weighs 49.4 g. Reverse center medallion shows maker mark "Keibel", double- headed eagle warrant signifying an official supplier to the Kapitul (Chancellery) of Russian Imperial Orders, 84 silver hallmark and St. Petersburg assay inspection hallmark of anchors and scepter. The inside of the pin has matching "Keibel" maker mark, double-headed eagle warrant and St. Petersburg assay mark.

In outstanding, excellent condition. The fragile emerald green enamel in the band is completely intact, without even the tiniest chips or flaking - a very uncommon case. The red enamel on the superimposed cipher is likewise perfect. The white enamel on the background of the center medallion has a single tiny "dot" which appears to be a manufacturing imperfection and a miniscule hairline invisible to the naked eye - otherwise pristine. The starburst shows very attractive patina with only a couple of tiny contact marks while its beading is beautifully crisp and completely free of wear. Very well-preserved gilt on the reverse has attractive areas of patination, characteristically more pronounced around the hinge and catch of the pin and near the tips of the starburst. Overall, a superb and very impressive piece!
