    Default grubenwehrwesen medal, need some help

    Hi Guys,

    I need some help with this medal, i'm not shure if it is a legit one.

    it is a "Gruben-Erinnerungsabzeichen" (dedicted to the mine workers). Can someone help me with confirming if it is a original one? Thanks.

    only thing missing is the yellow/black/white ribbon.

    greetings,
    Eddy

    I'm not keen on it personally. The overall quality looks poor and the details look soft.
    On the obverse there are some details which seem to be missing compared to known originals while on the reverse, the rim around the outside appears to vary in thickness, the oakleaves look to be double stamped and there is a strange bubble on the bottom edge, just left of centre. Original medals are generally of high quality and are crisply struck, even in zinc.
    I will happily stand corrected if my observations are wrong and someone who knows more about these can say it's a good example.
