Nobody got any opinion on this?
i agree its quite a cool looking piece ,im struggling to understand how decal's can be sustained considering the overall condition of these ground dug relics but yours seems to contradict this showing plenty of the decal

looks a good one.
Thought the same James, I don't know how the decals can be still intact.
Ned and Harry thanks!
I did a gamble, paying 21€ for it I think I did good
Enjoy it while you can as rusty stuff will continue to flake away.
That crown is more rust than steel but for 21 euros you didn't spend a lot.

Hi, looks like you have found a good one to me, just needs to be kept in a zero humidity environment otherwise it will end up as dust pretty quickly. Leon.

Used to find these in the forest and they would almost fall apart when handled but it is a good one . As for the decal it is not uncommon for the decal to actually survive beter than the steel !!

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
