Nahkampfspange real or fake?

Article about: by big ned Hi Joe, That's interesting and possible I guess. Can you show an example of either known type of JFS close combat clasp with a fluted pin, either factory fitted or a jeweller/othe

    Yes Ned,you are right of course.The Quality of the "Gablonz" makers are hard to beat.They belongs also to my favourite clasps.When you want only one clasp in the collection,with a nice Gablonz clasp you can nothing make wrong.

    I am personaly are searching for a Hymnen & Co Nahkampfspange.I hope i can one time find one.

    Regards
    Joe

    Yeah, I like H&CL clasps too, the attention to detail is great, but they're very rare to come by I believe. Funnily enough, after having described Hymmen Panzerkampf Abzeichen's as ugly on here not long back, i've recently acquired a hollow bronze zinc 2.2.2. type with all the wash absorbed. When looked at closely the detailing on the wheels, tracks, wreath and grass are far superior to other types and I think this goes for their CCC's as well, the idiosincratic design is subtle but very detailed compared to other makers.

    Regards, Ned.

    Hi guys,

    Well spotted, this indeed is a fake JFS clasp. The obverse is pretty common to find and often marked with F&BL or FLL on it. The reverse has been mixed up by the fakers to resemble a JFS reverse and is pretty well done, but as you guys have already noticed there are a few differences to originals when you study the details.
