Whow, impressive shrapnel. Perfect shape, color and best provenance.

Great one, Anne. It's the embodiment of the incredible forces set free in the moments of impact. Truely big enough. Beautiful patina all over. And finally: Vernadsky. Homestead of SA. The authentic of the authentic. There is a flavour of Professor Krinov in the air : - )
