    Hello Adrian,

    You have right, gold clasp are always hard nuts. They are very common so they will be always subject of debates.
    I added pic of reverse without flash. First pic on up was so brilliant.

    Gold clasps will always attract a certain amount of close scrutiny because of the rarity of these pieces and considering the high value of them it's a good thing. No-one wants to be caught out by one.

    I can't add anything regarding the piece as they are not my collecting field and my knowledge is very limited.

    I would mention a concern over the finish too. The obverse looks ok but the reverse is odd in terms of the wear. There isn't any except for the extreme edges, the whole of the reverse is unblemished. You would think that if the award had this much wear to the front, there would alos be a bit more on the back but there isn't, no chips, scratches or anything.

    On the plus side, there doesn't appear to be another colour underneath it so it might stand a chance.

    Goor photos though, thank you for posting.

    Deemed not to be a genuine gold clasp on WAF as well then!

    I personally take no pleasure from this, but Tom Durante is THE man on these matters. Although it's interesting that he agrees with the other poster that the "close combat clasp is refinished", but does not mention the other points he raises. For the record, other than the re-gilding, I believe the clasp is original, albeit pretty worn, and perhaps Mr. Durante does too.

    I stay to my opinion.The clasp itself is original.The gold finish is a bad joke....

    That would be my opinion of the comments made about it.
