A very nice and I feel these days, a scarce example of the Star, although, missing it's brooch, it retains it's original ribbon which is always good to see.

A good enough reason not to buy it then, always really annoying when something that has been kept together for decades is torn apart, a collector can spend his lifetime looking at the reverse of every SWB only to be disappointed on each occasion.
