Default 6 Dot 11.1

Just got a new one in the mail. Backplate is magnetic and has a hint of blue.

Nice original 6-DOT CCC with correct backplate and textbook reverse hardware setup. Amazing we still haven't figured out the identify of the maker of these, one of the last big mysteries as far as CCCs go. Hardware isn't much help, points roughly in the direction of Ludenscheid IMO but there isn't much to go on unfortunately.

I would recommend wiping a little vaseline on the obverse and reverse, I think that will help bring out some of the bronze finish that is left on it.

Great idea but you should use a hair dryer also to help with Vaseline this helps it get into the areas on the obverse and the pin catch set up on the reverse,let sit over night and wipe off with soft cloth and you will see a huge difference.

Good job now do it again this time use a very fine tooth brush to take it off and spread it on...did you use the hair dryer or not?

The CCC looks much better now after you have put some vaselin on it

Great clasp, not much finish left but sharp in detail and good condition.

True you can not bring back something that is no longer there what you are doing is making sure that the zinc pest does not come back on your very nice badge.
