One might occasionally find them in these boxes as well, but one finds all kinds of badges in medals in this "generic" commemorative box. I think the paper ones are proper!

This "general" box for all types of badges :)

Very often it was used as replacement box, but could be original for some badges too ...

Very interesting (and still unanswered) is the question about who and how got these suspensions.

Some say that red cross was special suspension for medical personnel ...

Others say that all types suspensions could be freely purchased from manufacturers ...

Now I understand what you meant by "stuffed" - not enamel!

For clarification

Made of cloth / stuff [of textile fabric] (before noun)

Guess "stuffed" sounds more like "packed"? ;)

Is this variation always without enamel?

Yep.

At least all three pieces that I saw and one that I own :)

Here's a few more of that 3rd variant, close ups of the cross - kinda get the feeling of the textile material, and the two-piece construction of the metal portion. I very much doubt the case is original, but the time period I believe fits the medal. Still, can't help but wonder if maybe these were available for purchase through such places? Hmmmm......
