Attractive medal-set: 'Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' being a maker- (ie. '14'-) marked- (and/or 'Feinzink'-based) specimen by the maker: 'L.Chr. Lauer' and that comes together with its (minimally confectioned) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt')
This is an attractive medal-set: 'Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' (ie. 'Ost'- or Eastern-Front medal) being a clearly maker- (ie. '14'-) marked- (and/or: typical zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based) specimen that was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'L.Chr. Lauer' as was based in the town of Nürnberg-W. and that comes together with its (minimally confectioned- and approx. 19 cm.-sized) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as issued and/or recently found. The piece - which is a very nicely preserved zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen - was most certainly issued but hardly used. The award shows a somewhat 'shiny' (ie. greyish-blue-) coloured age-patina and was most certainly never cleaned nor polished and therefore are details and/or finish still nice and/or crisp. Simply an attractive, maker-marked example of a: 'Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' that is with certainty accordingly priced!
