(Freidlander of Berlin) is stamped to the base of the hook. The cross arms measure 44 mm across. These were prized pieces, and as such, the recipient has obviously chosen to mark the heroic event in which he won the award by engraving the action details & date to reverse, more than likely 'in the field'. A lovely, well used, toned silver cross.
