Default 57er Medal Award Chain, S&L

relatively nice 57er mine Medal Chain, 7 awards... I like these little gems...anyway as always appreciate your thoughts/opinions...see the usual couple have the supposedly S&L "O" marking on the reverse....
Cheers

Hi Pink,

Nice mini chain! Don't see too many with the 12 year service award!

S&L for the small "o" reverse marking as you stated.

Best,

Jeff

Very nice Floyd!!
Not too many people seem to collect either the chained mini's, or mini-medal bars, both are really nice IMO, and its a shame they seem to be quite neglected!!
Yours is a fine example, with a nice selection of awards, the "O" mark wasn't used by S&L as a kind of MM, but seemed to be part of the production process they used! No other 57 maker used the same technique, so it is an easy way to ID an S&L piece......!!!!
