IMHO, nobody with the purpose of denazify a clasp, do it surgically arm to arm. Grind the whole tiny swaz at once

No need to get personal Thomas. I was replying to your post which I did not assume was for my sole interest. Ax to grind I have never understood.

Personal?? Who is getting personal? Take the comments for what they are, don't read anything into them.

"That is not correct." Period I guess. You have put a final stamp on the clasp and that's it. Wow...


I guess once you have spoken that's the end of it. Fine... And that's why I rarely participate in YOUR forum.



How about a small chisel and a small hammer? Not correct, yeah I get it...

Talk about getting personal? I don't make it a habit of censoring posts or cleaning them up, but be warned to not make personal comments. Focus on the item being discussed.

OK, go ahead and try that and see what result you get

Yeah OK, I am warned,


And sure send me a bronze bomber like this and I will prove it to you.


Or find ONE other bomber clasp by Juncker with this "flaw". Which you have not above.

I am probably "NOT CORRECT" but this thread started regarding an aberration of the TOP swaz arm. I am FULLY aware of the flaw to the lower arm.

The UPPER arm...



I am not saying anyone else's "opinion" is "not correct", I have respect for other people even when they think otherwise. I simply state proof to anyone's opinion has not been shown. If my opinion is "not correct" after proof otherwise, then great, we have learned something. My ego won't be irrevocably damaged.

Here it is again Brian, one I already showed in post #10 but again incase you missed it the first time. Missing the top arm of the swastika, just like the one that started this thread. Notice that the missing area is brighter than the other arms, that is because this area is recessed and therefore protected from wear and therefore still has all its original bright yellow fire gilded finish. The other arms are raised, so they are worn of the gilded finish.
