Nahkampfspange in Bronze 'C.E. Juncker'


Close Combat Clasp in Bronze (Nahkampfspange in Bronze). The Close Combat Clasp was introduced on 25 November 1942 for award to personnel who fought in hand-to-hand combat situations unsupported by armor. The clasp was issued in three grades: Bronze for fifteen combat days, Silver for thirty combat days and Gold for fifty combat days. The badge is a 'Feinzink' version, the design is showing a crossed bayonet and stick grenade. The badge, which still has great detail, has a functional pin and catch. It has never been cleaned nor polished and still retains almost all of its original bronze finish. The the medal is complete with its original non-magnetic backing plate. The badge is nicely maker marked with 'C.F. Juncker' indicating production by the company of 'C.E. Juncker' in Berlin. This is the first type with full eagle's wings and a misspelling in the initials of the maker mark. A nice original CCC in stunning condition!
