I meant no harm...the discussion points back to Bernd's point on scale/reference.

Hanno sent a number of pictures of the associated descriptive information at the museum and there is nothing about mass or size.

Even so...I have a hard time seeing 832 grams in that slice, based on the scale of the parts and pieces in the slice??

Thank you, Juergen! What a pity they don't add a label and/or a scale cube.
