    Default Close Combat Clasp-NKS- Is this real?? Opinions Please

    Hi, I have been offered this Close Combat clasp. I do not care about the condition. It looks ground dug-bodenfunde, which is OK with me.

    The questions are:

    1. Is it real, and what is it, a gold or bronze color clasp, if it is possible to tell from the these photos.

    2. What is a badge like this worth today? A fair price?
    Is 150 euros too much?

    Thanks in advance for any comments.

    Regards, Steve

    First off the clasp is ok, its a real one, sadly as you said its "ground dug" secondly 150 for a bronze(JFS?) is far too much IMO. a true figure nearer the mark would be half that ......................75, no more

    John is correct 150 euros for a ground dug clasp is way too much !!

    Hi, OK, thanks for the info. I offered $100US and he said it was too little. I collect grenades and like this clasp, and the Ostfront "frozen meat" meadal, they both have grenades on them. I have an Ostmedal already, but need one of these. Ground dug is OK, as long as you can see the grenade!!

    Hi Dom, maybe so, It could be the soil it was found in was very acidic also. I did not get this one, he wanted too much for it. I will keep looking around, someday.....maybe find one for fair price.
