    The cross is a typical souvenier/patriotic piece. But look at
    the ribbon. It's a 25mm "hand stitched" American flag.

    My best guess is that given that the dates are pre 1917, that
    this cross was worn by someone in one of the several German-
    American social clubs active in the US around that time.

    Thanks Richard.

    I doubt that the ribbon came with the cross but was more
    likely made by or added by the person who wore this piece.
