Default JFS CCC Fake on Ratisbons Auction

Hi guys,

Just a heads up the JFS Close Combat Clasp in the Ratisbons upcoming auction is a fake. It is made by the same fakers and has the same obverse design as Reproduction #7 in the CCC book for those that have it, page 456. I already emailed Klaus to let him know its fake, I am sure he will do the right thing and remove it, but just be careful out there fellas. Stay on your toes!

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

Thanks Thomas!
One more for our "hall of shame" I guess. We have just withdrawn it.
