Default Ground Attack Clasp for Review

Gents, I ask your thoughts on this Ground Attack clasp made by S & S. I like the little ball hinge. Thanks

Looks original to me as well. Here's the link in the originals galllery to RS&S/RSS clasps.

I am searching for medals and badges from Gablonz makers.

Hi Rich,

As the others have said, its an original Schlacht. Notice the catch, it has been soldered in but this is typical of the later-war Schlachts of RSS where they had a problem with their crimping tool necessitating the catch to be soldered in at the factory.

If it doesn't have a hinge and catch, I'm not interested......well, maybe a little
