Measures 40.8 mm in height (incl. eyelet), 34.2 mm in width; weighs 11.3 g. The serial number is stamped in standard manner on the horizontal arms.

In very fine to excellent condition. The center medallion on both sides shows minor wear to the high points and a few tiny scratches, while most of the details are still very well preserved. There is a small ding to the eyelet on the reverse but the cross itself is completely free of edge knocks or nicks. Attractive even toning to silver on both sides. The cross is from a serial number range on which the recipient data has not yet been found in the Russian archives, but it certainly has a great potential for future research.
