An eight-point silver star consisting of clusters of ten faceted rays, obverse centre presents a Gold latin cross with white enamel arms and a red enamel border, with raised inscription GUD OG KONGEN (God and the King) across the four arms with a Gold crown with red enamel cap overtop of a central W, reverse presents vertical pin assembly with reinforced tips, measures 84mm (w) x 84mm (h), with a chip in red enamel border on 12 o’clock arm of cross, light crazing in central of white enamel cross, likely underwent reattachment of the Latin cross due to noticeable adhesive residue, repair to catch, otherwise fine.

Footnote: The Order of the Dannebrog is an order of chivalry instituted in 1671 by Christian V. Until 1808, membership in the order was limited to fifty members of noble or royal rank who formed a single class known as White Knights. In 1808, the Order was reformed and divided into four classes. It is only awarded to royalty with close family ties with the Danish Royal House. The statutes were amended in 1951 so that both men and women could be members of the Order.
