I'm so happy that the second tin made it to you!!!!  Actually, the rusty goodies were nicer in the resend, since I found most of them digging in historic English home rubbish piles.  (Oh and I found the pelvis bone under my floor that I'm ripping out - creature unknown).

Sadly, it seems that the ephemera bit covering the copper tape join seems to have popped off during transit  Sad  It was a scrap of the funky greek newspaper I included.  I'm hoping that the copper will patina nicely for you over time.

PHEW!!!!  Sorry about the craziness...I thought that our tins would arrive before my 3 week long trip to England - I think yours turned up on my doorstep a day or two after I left.  And who knows, maybe one day the original tin will turn up and surprise you.  I'm glad you like the second one - I think that I like it better too!
