A new rare one !

Recommended Posts

 

When you look at the backside of this simple medal it dosn´t look very exciting ...

Finnish Medal for Courage 2nd class , Winter war 1939 , awarded 115 842 times. Well well, but when you turn it around :)

This one is the one with Red Cross awarded to Nurses most and possible some Pte Medic , awarded 241 ! times 

a rare one for sure

As with medals of a lot of countries, the difference is in the small details.

Good luck with your quest.

Are the Red crosses part of the stamping or added by the factory?

The Red Cross is part of the satamping, so they are made from different tools then the " normal" ones
