L/58 is the mark for Rudolf Souval.
There were only three recognised makers of this award before May 1945, Deschler, Steinhauer & Luck and Zimmermann, Souval did not produce these during the war.
Therefore it is reasonable to say that this is a post war produced piece by Souval who are renowned for their production of awards after the end of hostilities.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Adrian is probably right. I have an RK EK w/swords and oak leaves . It's has pretty high quality craftsmanship and has the stamps, and even made of silver frame and magnetic iron core. The maker mark is L/12 ( juncker)and the cluster is marked L/50. This is most likely made by a similar firm , post-war.
