    Default 57er Mine Rescue Medal (Grubenwehr Ehrenzeichen)

    Gents, my latest 57er, a Mine Rescue Medal "Grubenwehr Ehrenzeichen" probably by St u L......production time unknown, not many encountered, those seen do not have the typical raised features polished like so many of the 57er medals, so I am unable to date.......I think it looses something with the omission of the eagle/swastika !
    Prost ! Steve.
