Underneath, the inscription reads: for energetic commitment during the winter campaign 1941-1942 / the commanding general and chief of Air District Moscow / Fischer / General der Flieger.
The reverse shows two crossed swords for the maker, Meissen, and features the maker inscription "Staatlich Meissen / Böttger Steinzeug".
