Kinda pricey for your first eBay purchase. Looks as though the back part of the kakatua is broken too.

I thought about this puppy for a moment, then left it - not much on the art carvings and yes, the back crest is broken off. Double twist core got my interest.

Hmmm... Though the dealer must be very happy with the final closing price, I wonder if the high bidder might just turn into a credit risk. :P After all, he has nothing to lose.

At that price I would expect a good scabbard with some silver. Consolation for the broken pommel. Tim
