    Good tombak CCC in bronze by A.G.M.u.K type 1.1.1. IMO.

    Hello Ilya and welcome to the forum and thank you for posting.

    It looks good and as already mentioned it is a tombac piece and not brass.

    I agree with you guys.It looks to be a original clasp from A.G.M. u.K. ground dug.

    Hello guys,

    it is indeed a good one but not made from tombak. Nearly every CCC were made from zinc, only some gold grades made from tombak material.

    Janos is right, thinking about it, the other day a presentation close combat clasp in gold was discussed where it was shown that only they were tombak, the regular ones being zinc or alumiminium. It was me wot wrote it...!

    If it wasn't for the tip being cleanly snapped off, it would be in not bad shape at all! It interesting to imagine just How the injury must have occurred to it! And, yes-it looks genuine to my eyes as well.
