    These were given to me by my Aussi friend Tony U.S 20mm relics they were dug in Darwin, Strauss Airstrip did electrolysis and I think they turned out great. Here are some before and after pics and last pic is a sample of what they looked like.

    No I didn't Steve they have a tendency to shed like a dog and I didn't want to put them in a bag and be lost in the closet,these will display well.

    If I was a single man I would not care, I have it good and dont want to rock the cradle if you know what I mean with extra mess and all.
    Thanks for the kind words Steve and GP.
