    Tom,

    It looks like a commemoritive badge to the War Vetrans ascociation (KriegerBund). They look to be issued to Front soldiers (Krieger) and civil defence/second line troops(landwehr) verien is club/group. This part of the Group came from Friedenau in 1877. It would therfore not be official as such and would only be for the local members. I know nothing of this period but thats what it translates to roughly. Hope this helps.

    Jock is correct. This style of cross was made for the many
    different veterans associations. Unfortunately I do not know
    the specific details about this one.
