Order of the Reunion. Intended to replace a wide range of orders in the Netherlands and Germany, it was only issued for some 5 years before becoming obselete. There were around 1,400 awards made in 3 classes, of which this is an example of the Knights award. Some one third of the awards were to Frenchmen, and the majority were to Dutch citizens. With the first abdication of Napoleon it was no longer permitted to wear the badge itself, but the ribbon or sash could be worn.
