    Default U-boot Frontspange in Bronze, opinions needed please.

    A friend of mine has brought this clasp for re-sale and I just want to see if it is genuine before he sells it. I have compared this example to known originals of this maker. Firstly the detail on the front of this clasp seems to be very soft. The catch and pin appear to match the makers and also so does the style of the lettering although I am not totally convinced, but what do you guys think?
    Thanks, Glen.

    Hi Glen, I would agree with Pete.

    These are made of zink. The one illustrated clearly is not.

    Cheers, Ade.
