I saw a QSA on a dealer's site today and immediately thought the DoM clasp was a copy.

Here are are the clasps. What do you think?

Here are two more DoMs for comparison.

In this image, the top, loose clasp is the copy.

Copy Natal and Rhodesia clasps. The middle clasp is original and provides a comparison against the copy.

One dealer sells copy clasp in silver for £12.00 each. They are described as 'excellent' and, as you can see from these three examples, the quality is very good.

Lancashire Medals have, by chance, two copy clasps including a DoM clasp. This pair is on sale for £40.

The height of the letters on the DoM clasp is noticeable smaller than on a genuine clasp.
