Awarded to workers, technicians, and engineers for outstanding performance of duties; high production; and meritorious service in reconstructing the Donbass coal mines.

This restoration was done mainly by German POWs. The medal was awarded only to the Russian supervisors and machine operators. Rebuilt were 129 main pits; 889 smaller pits; 300 mine head-frames were rebuilt and newly constructed; and 700 lifting machines were put into operation. It is made of brass. Approximately 46,000 were issued."

    This particular example of the Medal for the Restoration of the Donbass Coal Mines came with the wrong ribbon, a Victory over Germany ribbon, which greatly effected negotiations, but I was able to replace it with a correct ribbon, and this is the finished product. . .
