      Also found excellent / detailed pictures of the Klein clasp, it is especially hard to find a good picture of the reverse of the Klein clasp

          The Honor Clasp pictured on the cover of the 1944 Signal magazine. I believe it is the Klein clasp.

          It would be great to find a picture of any other variant of the Honor clasp in a period publication like a catalog, a post card, a magazine, a book, period photo, etc.
          So guys if you have any picture of the Honor Roll Clasp please post it here. We can and will identify the maker and the variant.

              Another period publication where the Honor Clasp can be seen is a book about combat awards called "Der Lohn Der Tat" (pictured below) published in 1944-45. Although illustrations of the awards in the book look like drawings in fact they are hand-retouched pictures of actual badges.

                The Honor Clasp pictured in this book is the Klein clasp.

                  I've tried to examine Honor clasps in period pictures, found over hundred of them on the Internet but unfortunately, most of them are just too blurry and/or their resolution's way too low for details in clasps to be seen. Of them all I was able to recognize clasps in only three pictures max but it was Klein. I though that I would post them here anyway as I am sure it is nice to see this beautiful award in wear.

                    I really hope that later members will be posting here high-resolution images where Honor clasps can seen better.
