Attractive, 'Nahkampfspange in Bronze' (or: bronze-class close-combat clasp ie. CCC) being a maker- (ie. 'FLL'-) marked, so-called: '3rd pattern'-specimen as was produced by the maker- (ie. 'Hersteller') 'Friedrich Linden'

This is an attractive - and I deem moderately used- and/or worn! - example of a so-called: 'Nahkampfspange in Bronze' (or: bronze-class close-combat clasp ie. CCC) being a clearly maker- (ie. 'FLL'-) marked and/or (typical) quite converse-shaped so-called: 'third pattern'-specimen as was produced by the maker- (ie. 'Hersteller') 'Friedrich Linden' and that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The piece - which has a very detailed and/or pronounced appearance - retains a fair bit of its (somewhat faded) bronze-coloured finish and naturally retains its firmly 'crimped' and metal-based 'back-plate' in place (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' is as stated a truly converse-shaped example that comes mounted onto its (functional- and/or copper-coloured) flute-shaped pin (and/or typical 'thin-shaped-wire'-type catch- ie. crimped-in catch-set-up) both which are of course still present, unaltered and/or fully functional. A similar example is also described in the excellent reference-book entitled: 'The German Close Combat Clasp of World War II' by Thomas M. Durante wherein this particular pattern is given the unique reference-numeral: '2.5 - 'FLL Fat-Bellied Pin - 3rd'-pattern. The piece was found as such at a private-household in Germany and was never before part of a collection. Simply an attractive example of a bronze-class 'Nahkampfspange': it should be noted that original examples of this neat and fairly uncommon combat-award are nowadays getting hard to find. I deem that I have priced this neat bronze-class example accordingly!
