Leafing through some old Bosleys catalogues I came across another 26-clasp QSA conforming to the pattern outlined in my earlier post. Perhaps the most noticeable feature is the double ring surmounting the claw suspension. The clasps also exhibit all the typographical anomalies that I have previously noted.

This one sold on 14 Dec 2005 (Est. £450 - £500).

According to the Daily Mirror of 16 Nov 1914, this 24-clasp example belonged to Lord Roberts.
As one would expect for a medal belonging to such a prominent military figure, the clasps all appear to conform to the official pattern.
