Handy to keep the picture on file for when one needs to do a clasp comparison in order to determine whether its fake or genuine.

There was some discussion on the Forum about these unnamed 26 clasp items some time ago. I looked for it to no success. I have ID's two such items here in OZ; the example hidden away in the bowels of the Sydney Power House Museum lacks the two date clasps. The other in my current custody has the complete set. I recall that a couple more were reported as extant elsewhere.
It seems that these items were issued to master tailors at Woolwich Arsenal to ensure that the QSA clasps were assembled in the correct order. I would think that the museum example mentioned above may have been used here locally when clasps were eventually received for medals which were issued without bars.
Regards
IL.

Hi, I have read the previous thread and also looked at the Spink April 2023 catalogue illustration of the 26 clasps again. The description does not refer to tailors clasps in this case, so interested in the Forum's view on this aspect?
Regards

Gavin
