the NKS clasp you show have the classic post war fittings soldered to it so my assumption is that it is a post '45 piece..
In a lot of cases Souval never even bothered attempting to fit a backplate.
This one looks as though it may have had the long vertical crimps holding the backplate in that has fallen out in time
All the best
Agreed, a postwar Souval made award. The "base" might be from wartime stock, but the clasp is considered to be postwar assembled nonetheless.
I agree with the above comments.

Typical post-war Souval...

Thanks for you opinions. They confirm my initial thoughts.
