    A nice catch Slade!
    I would agree with Ned's assessment, but not too sure about the backplate. Here is my example with a darker plate.

    Hi Ralph,

    Regarding the backplate, it appears that the bronze plated backplate is more common than your black one. Here is a direct quote from Tom Durante on a thread on GCA that I can't link to on here:

    "The copper coating would definately mute the details a bit. What is throwing me is the black backplate, usually bronze FLL clasps have more of a golden colored plate."

    And here are numerous examples to show just how prevalent they are, in my rough estimation around 8 "golden colored" to every 1 black type.

    Regards, Ned.

    FWIW, my bronze grade has a dark backplate which has partly lifted to show a bronze-like material underneath (yes I know I need better photos)

    Glenn, this is a JFS example, I believe the issue we were talking about is a trait of FLL examples.
