By the way, I have just remembered that it is said that there are medals that are signed "P GRANT" under the head on the obverse/reverse (sometimes referred to as "official issues") and medals that are not signed. Can anyone confirm this? What is the story behind these versions?

Medal signed "P. GRANT." under the head:

Interesting combination. Has anyone seen another one or at least read about its existence? As far as I know, these clasps were only for the 'Crusade' medal.

Yes, the ribbon ring is apparently broken from the medal.
I did not notice it, as I was (and always am) in a hurry. <_<
The clasp is nice (and rare), though...

It is very rare indeed. This one and the one posted by Cuza are the only MAREA NEAGRĂ clasps I have seen.
