Pale blue enamel cross pattée alisée with three arms, with crossed shamshirs and palm leaves between the arms, with laterally-pierced ball suspension; the face with a circular central red enamel medallion bearing the gilt Pahlevi Taj (crown); the reverse identical; on original very age-faded ribbon mounted for wear in the French style with bronze laurel wreath citation. The Military Order of Merit was established by the Pahlevi dynasty in the late 1920s and abolished in 1979 following the Islamic Revolution. This example is of considerable age and locally made. The Order is very rare in all classes.
