    Default Nahkampfspange......Real or Fake?

    Hi Chaps.
    I've been offered this close combat clasp which has no wash left, so not sure which class it is, and as you can see its not in the best of condition. Maker marked FLL and weighing in at 35.6g.
    Would appreciate some help determining whether its right or wrong.
    Cheers

    Hi Mark
    You need a shot of that catch I think. It looks an original Bronze Friedririch Linden. What I do like is the backplate (which looks like it's been glued in) The stylized font with the "slope" What I don't like are the eagles feet, but that could be down to wear. And a straight shot of the back, you're looking for the downward curve on the pin. common to all FLL's
    Hope that helps
