I know this has probably been asked before, but what is the difference in a pinback and a clutchback fastener on a WWII ribbon bar? Thanks for being patient with someone still learning!

Does anyone know the answer to this?



The upper ribbon has clutch-back fasteners. The bottom one is a pin-back.
