Ex auction Galйrie George Petit, Paris, of May 28 and 29, 1929, 'Collection Ney Prince de la Moskowa'.
This model of a breast star, showing the slightly sideward standing eagle with hanging wings and the St. Andrew's cross on the chest appeared with the accession of Emperor Alexander I to the throne in 1801. It is typical for the entire period of his reign until his death in 1825, as can be seen on the portraits of contemporary holders. It seems that in the beginning of the reign of his brother and successor Nicholas I, in connection with the reformation of the imperial heraldry, the eagle moved from a sideward to a horizontal position but continued to show hanging wings. After the accession of Alexander II Nicholajewich in 1855, the entire imperial heraldry was reformed again, showing now the horizontal flying imperial eagle with erected wings. This type of eagle was also introduced in the order's insignia and remained the same until the end of monarchy in 1917.
After the death of Léon Napoléon Louis Michel Ney, 4th Prince de la Moskowa (born 1870) in 1928, his huge collection was sold in Paris. He was the great grandson of the French Maréchal de l'Empire Michel Ney (1769–1815), 1st Duke d'Elchingen (1808) and 1st Prince de la Moskowa (1813).
