thanks, battara & marius.
i bought this on the assumption it was not antique, let alone 3000 yrs. old, probably not even 'vintage'. i bought is cheap, instead of the hundreds of uk pounds i've seen them go for, which i will not pay, i can't afford them, so it can be a nice wallhanger when i get a haft worked up for it. i may even polish it a bit
. i'll think of it as a placeholder in my axe display area. thought i'd check y'all here before i fart around with a real one & screw it up.
thought it was kinda cool with the extra added animals, which is i have read rare but not unheard of.
