I not sure if the Rhod clasp is original but wondering if others agree of disagree? Mainly due to the poor definition on the clasp

Hello Stephen,
I do not think that clasp is original, it is unlike any original examples that I have ever seen.
Regards Frank

Please note that I'm not an expert at all... but I agree, that is not an original clasp... warning lights for me is the colour of the silver and then the font thickness and positions on the clasp... Even the TVL clasp looks fishy...

But again, I can be wrong... Maybe Henk can comment on this one

Thanks Gents,

I am with you it certainly appears to be a copy.

Cheers

Many thanks for posting your Scottish Rifles medals. They are excellent. Having tramped all over Spion Kop was a major influence on my interest in the regiment, as was their activities in and around Colenso.
