57er Deumer Nahkampfspange.
Gents my first "Deumer" Nahkampfspange (Close Combat Clasp), an early Bronze grade...notice the lack of a back plate, solid one piece construction with painted black background to the crossed bayonet and grenade.....also the crisp detail and polished highlights, this one really really sparkles in the right light ! hard to show in a photograph !
Prost ! Steve.
"The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
