Fantastic find that should make a wonderful center piece for your collection!!

 

As far as the prep goes though, I dunno, @Ludwigia did alright I suppose. What did you use a hammer and nail?

All kidding aside Roger, that is a fantastic prep job as well that deserves a badge of its own!

It is indeed a drool-worthy find. I'm sure it will take center stage in your collection (for now). Though you may discover even greater finds in the future, you'll always remember the moment you first saw this one.

 

 

Cheers.
