A textbook second pattern Close Combat Clasp by JFS! It is constructed out of a die struck, zinc-alloy base that has been bronze washed. The obverse depicts a crossed model 24 grenade and K98 bayonet with oak leaves, acorns and lined rays all beneath a Heer open winged eagle clutching a swastika in its talons. The reverse of the badge correctly displays; the “F.E.C. W.E. Peekhaus Berlin” (left) and “JFS” embossed maker marks. It has the correct; steel crimped catch, crimped hinge and sturdy coke bottle pin. The pin, hinge and catch all work well. The plate is steel and magnetic. It has the correct second pattern die (see the bayonet).The badge depicts beautiful details throughout! An excellent example that you would be proud to own! See pg. 174 of Durante’s CCC reference book.
