Mint example of the Close Combat Clasp in Bronze by (Joseph Felix & Sohn.) Produced in zink construction with integral hinge and crimped in catch. Maker and designer marked on the reverse. So called type 6.5 with the 2nd Pattern Marking locations. Very good condition with all the high quality bronze finish present. These Close Combat Clasp with this quality finish are becoming harder and harder to find. It would be hard to find a better example.
Note – The reverse of the badge correctly displays the “F.E.C. W.E. Peekhaus Berlin” (left) and “JFS” (right) embossed maker marks. These were done on all 2nd pattern types by JFS. The 1st pattern examples would have these markings switch locations.
