Looks like a "KO" to me. Did you check for a maker's mark? most KOs were
stamped directly below the catch however unmarked examples are not uncommon.
"KO" is still an unknown maker but a lot of us believe that these were the make of crosses
that were awarded to the troops.
I can't be much help with any information about the case.

I agree with Greg. Nice to see that dark patina, meaning that the cross
has not been cleaned - if at all - for many, many years.........
I had checked-unmarked. Thank you!
