Earlier, I knew that such a medal had existed. But I did not see it photography. There were no information about this medal on any site.
Almost everybody confirms that «Medal for Restoration of the Donbass Coal Mines» has no variation.
I knew that difference only in that “there is no stair on the tower”, 400 pieces only.
However, recently I have found it. There is detailed photographies for comparison.
Please, Compare by yourselves.
The Left row is usual, the right is "without stair on tower".

I have a medal which is identical in the features you showed in your variation and also a restoration of the black metallurgical enterprises which shows the same unusual loop device.

Sorry that the scans are poor but it shows the deferent loop

In that case, I don't like the white residue on the letters - which is common amongst faked medals, AND original medals which were cleaned by some silver cleaning fluid.

I can be wrong but I don't like the loops and the edges, uneven or too thick...
