An amazing item! The quality of workmanship is obvious from the moment you hold it. You can literally see the love and dedication put into creating it. Other than not having any dirt on it, this reproduction looks just like an authentic artifact. I could not be happier with it my purchase. Its a wonderful addition to my collection.
