The cross is an earlier example by Steinhauer & Luck, with a vaulted cross having a separately applied central eagle medallion and a narrow pin. The decoration has its lapel insignia within the case. The interior of the case is marked "S&L" in the corner of the base, and the case bears the full maker name on the base. There is an identification label that was taped to the bottom of the case. Overall excellent condition.
