Most Red Cross gorgets feature an aluminum backplate.  This specimen features an original Red Cross Gorget insignia, mounted on a plated brass backplate, and not the normally seen aluminum backplate.  In addition, the chain is more in style of this backplate, instead of the regular chain found on gorgets of this type.  It is possible this gorget predates the 1938 reorganization of the German Red Cross that is spoken about in the Richard Deeter book on Gorgets (page 167-169).
