    Ralph's nailed it, (on behalf of the other guy).... A fairly typical type 4.3 "Missing Log" example, there's only one known copy of these IIRC, and that's nowhere near looking like an original.

    Thanks Ned.

    So for the avoidance of doubt for others who may read this in the future, given that this example has the known flaws (missing log and flaw in the "2") it is an original shield.

    Original it is, but not all "missing logs" have a Puffin rather than an eagle. If the price is good then maybe, but I'd look for one with a better defined eagle. Just my opinion. Stewy

    Lol. Agree with you Stewy. It's a butt ugly bird.

    But alas....this is not my shield. Was posting it on behalf of another person.

    You may struggle there gentlemen....... Even the early types had an eagles head that was the Aquiline version of Rocky Dennis. The first one is about as good as these get.

    Thanks for the comparisons Ned. Michaels one takes the biscuit though, it's a proper John Merrick on par with RK ASA eagles IMO. I can definitely see that these Demyansk's (missing log) lack finesse. Stewy
