There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

A giant targe you say....

I'm sure I've seen that in the mist riddled past, and I am sure there has only ever been one.

Was it at Prestonpans in 1995?

Out of interest the biggest I've ever seen was about 24" across. There must have been a lot like that as is was a victorian mix up. It had the back and board of one and a different tooled front put on. Northampton museum asked me to have a look at it as there were strange metal fittings, these turned out to be wall hangers IMO.
It was on tour with a load of other stuff from thier stores.

There are some REALLY niced tooled examples about, being a leather worker interested in such things opens doors to some nice collections not usually seen by the public. However there are also a few fakes around, but they are relatively easy to spot.
