Congrats, a lovely piece.

The manufacturer is probably the Koniglichen Munzamt in Stuttgart.

To distinguish a Friedrichsorden of E. Fohr of an exemplar of the National Mint is relatively simple, but a Wurttemberg MVO....is more difficult.

From what I understand from the stunning Raff/Klein book, this is a cross by the Stuttgart mint.

Other maker??? Yes... you might say that.

I doubt an official one though.

I'm not sure if the Hüsken cross might be a mint cross with a repaired suspension. Hard to tell from the pictures. If it isn't, it's a wearer's copy - in best case.

The book I'm referring to is "Klein, Ulrich und Raff, Albert" - "Die Württembergischen Medaillen von 1864 - 1933". You can order it (and the other volumes, covering the earlier medals) at Bretzendorfer's:
