In my opinion a nice, all original award certificate KVK 2nd Class to Red Cross Oberwachtführerin Else Wolff from Wuppertal-Elberfeld. As for me, the missing date is no reason for any concern. In fact, I bet it happend more than just once. With the document issued to a female you got yourself a nice find and a keeper!
Oh and are the signatures real, or stamps? And what is "Wuppertal-Elberfeld?"

Wuppertal-Elberfeld is a city in Germany. It is east of Dusseldorf. Apparently, Else was from there or serving there. William

Very cool Mike! Harder to find the ones awarded to women than men! Good find

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
