Hi Dave,

Both fine original clasps. The JFS is a textbook original but hard to tell how much finish is left on it. The FLL is also textbook 2nd pattern, however its missing its backplate and doesn't have much of its original finish remaining. Both are pretty common clasps to find, so I would suggest holding out for better examples that have more finish and are 100% intact IMO.

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