    Description:


    Nicely detailed, die struck, zinc construction clasp. The clasp is in the form of a central square panel with a recessed background field with an embossed national eagle with out-stretched wings, clutching a canted swastika in its talons, positioned above a crossed bayonet and stick grenade, flanked by four oak-leaves and dual acorns superimpose on a ribbed, horizontal outward pointing base. As is typical and expected with a zinc production examples it has pushed away most of its original bronze wash and has reverted to the flat matte grey of the base zinc. The clasp has a magnetic sheet metal backing plate positioned behind the eagle, bayonet and grenade motif that is held in place by crimped, side tabs of the reverse. The reverse has a solid, soldered hinge, a broad, tapering, horizontal pin and a soldered catch on an oval base plate all intact. The reverse is well marked with the embossed designer’s name and location, "Fec. W. E. Peekhaus Berlin", and the manufacturer’s initials "FLL.", with each initial encompassed by a circular border indicating manufacture by Friedrich Linden of Lüdenscheid. Nice untouched example
