Ian, nice clasp. Appears to have retained a good portion of the bronze finish and does not suffer overly much from bubbling or corrosion.
Thanks for sharing. Smile

Thank you Joe,

Not sure why, but I've been bitten by a bit of a "navy" bug of late. In addition to picking up this clasp, I've also picked up a near mint navy, Narvik shield, and a beautiful Imperial naval dagger with ivory handle and maden hair, damascus steel blade. Not sure what's next but I'm really enjoying fondeling the pieces I've got! Wink ~ Ian
