Erinnerungsmedaille für Rettung aus Gefahr 1933 im Etui by the Prussian Mint, Berlin. Instituted June 22, 1933 by Reich President von Hindenburg, the Commemorative Medal for Rescue from Danger was awarded to rescuers who saved people at considerable risk to their own lives. The portable and non-portable award could be awarded to the same person. Designed by the sculptor Prof. Hermann Müller-Erfurt. It is constructed out of a die stamped silver base. The round shaped obverse features an embossed Prussian eagle with swastika on a shield on its chest. The reverse reads: “Für rettung aus Gefahr” surrounded by an oak leaf and acorn wreath. The rim is unmarked. It measures 2 inches in diameter. It comes housed in its appropriate issue case. The reverse of the case / hinge portion was likely repaired leaving some glue remnants. The push button does not function properly securing the lid. There is the odd scuff. The case measures 2 3/4 inches wide by 2 11/16 inches deep by 13/16 inches thick. A very rare piece.
