Unnamed as Issued.

This is a defining medal as it clearly illustrates that many many of the AZOFF clasps were in fact issued late (lose) and were supplied to recipients well after the issue of the Crimea medals.

A Highly Unusual & Rare "Naval" Crimea Medal & Turkish Crimea Pair.  Clasps AZOFF & SEBASTOPOL. Unnamed as Issued. 
Only Issued to R.N. & MARINES who entered the AZOFF Sea. One doesn't see many AZOFF clasps and of those few medals that do surface bearing this clasp many are encountered with a lose clasp slipped onto the ribbon. This led to many of these already scarce items becoming lost over the years.

A Highly Unusual & Rare "Naval" Crimea Medal & Turkish Crimea Pair.  Clasps AZOFF & SEBASTOPOL. Unnamed as Issued. 
Only Issued to R.N. & MARINES who entered the AZOFF Sea. This lovely two clasp medal is 100% original with a superb and matching old graphite grey tone which well illustrates the situation and further demonstrates one recipient's novel and contemporary solution to the lose clasp factor.




A Highly Unusual & Rare "Naval" Crimea Medal & Turkish Crimea Pair.  Clasps AZOFF & SEBASTOPOL. Unnamed as Issued. 
Only Issued to R.N. & MARINES who entered the AZOFF Sea. Obviously at the time of issue, he employed a very talented jeweller to make an almost microscopic drilling to each curved end of the suspension, just above the end entry points of the horizontal ribbon bar. He has then put a pair of equally microscopic rivets through the bottom lugs of the Sebastopol clasp in order to securely attach the pair of clasps to the medal. The work is totally contemporary and original and being naturally time-toned it fully matches the old original time developed colour of the two medals and clasps.

The medal arrived with us on its original and superbly preserved ribbon and having inspected the rear of the two clasps it's also fully obvious that these two have always been together as an originally supplied matched pair as they both bear matching tone on both sides and are joined by official but a slightly later style of riveting concurrent with their later pairing and issue.
