    Campaign Clasp Tonkin


    Recommended Posts

    Hello Gents and collector friends,

    I have a question to my Tonkin clasp.

    Is it possible to date or find out who was the producer ?

    It deviates from other campaign clasps for the Médaille Coloniale.

    All thoughts and opinions apprechiated.

    Kind regards

    According to "La Médaille coloniale - Guide du collectionneur" by Patric Binet (p.131), this particular type of casp for TONKIN was produced by Ferdinand Rottarch

    I am afraid it is Mourgeon and not F. Rottarch. The pearls around the frame are typical Mourgeon's style, which makes easy identification.

    Titles are above the pictures in the book of Patrick Binet.
