Wow when was the last time you’ve come across one of these!? Rare! It is constructed out of a die struck nickel-silver base that has been silver washed and contains red, black and white enamel work. A final protectant laquer coating was applied. The obverse features a centrally placed red cross above a white round backing that is surrounded by “Deutsches Rotes kreuz Helferin” (German Red Cross Volunteer/Assistant) which is above a silvered border. This portion is flanked by a back rectangular bar. The enamel is in wonderful condition and retains 30% of its original lacquer coating! The full back reverse is shows an embossed “Ges Gesch.”. It also has a soldered on block hinge, flat wire catch and round wire pin assembly. It continues to work well! The whole piece holds nice silver wash throughout. It measures approximately 1 ¾ inches wide by 7/8 of an inch high. A rare find!
