Well done Paul, you're a credit to the hobby. The museum must have thought Christmas had come early.
Just because you are not paranoid, it does not mean that they are not out to get you

Very nice, but are you certain it's going to go on 'display' ? I know several museum acquired bits that have been purchased/donated to be displayed and they have NEVER seen the light of day since! which is a sad shame :g48:

I'd loved to have found this object, we done Paul and the land owner for donating it to the museum.

I have been working closely with the museum and they have already created space in the centre of the display case a couple of weeks ago :Biggestgrin:

They have designed the pedastal and enhancements and it just needs finishing off now that they actually have the badge in their possession.
It's going on temporary display for two months then it's off to York University to be assessed regarding bringing her back to her original state :g49:
After that, it's back to The Museum of Lancashire to go on permanent display at the heart of their medieval display.

That's fantastic news :g50: well done, bet your chuffed.

.... and Kev - I like to look on myself as a realist and not an optimist. Nothing worse than an authority saying one thing then doing the complete opposite :g44: as they frequently do :g62:
