    I'll welcome any ideas for a handle?

    Found some time to work on something I've wanted to make for a while, a rather heavyweight 999 silver letter opener, very much a work in progress and some brainstorming needed for the handle. I've attached a video for anyone wanting to have a closer look.

    Wow I'm speechless reading my results. I can’t believe I got the elusive MS70 griffin.

    So Chuffed I can continue the collection in 70s. The grades on the American eagles are brilliant 2002 is a low mintage year.
    Thanks @Numistacker absolutely great results I'm buzzing with excitement.

    Planned on getting an Omega Speedmaster Pro for my 40th, 1 1/2 years later I have finally got around to spoiling myself.
    Got the "Crystal Sandwich" version so it comes with the clear case back and saphire crystal front instead of the hesalite.
    Also comes with a loop so I can admire my watch and my coins
    Just waiting on delivery now :

    Getting bored of this conversation. Who gives a crap about if its rarer or not, its short sighted and missing the point. Are these fantastic coins? Yes. Will they look great in someones collection? Yes. Will they make you money when you decide to sell? probably.
     
    Everything else is just academic.

    The antique looks by far the best imo, panda does look pissed though.

    my watch maker offered me an absolute steal on this 1930s Silver omega trench watch, most likely an officer's. Couple of hairline cracks on the dial but I shall be getting it repair by a guy over in the states.

    I wear this once in a blue moon. But today is my in-laws 60th wedding anniversary dinner by the river in Sonning. I thought I would dress the part..

    @Trumar I need to do some work to the wire lugs and the dial redoing but it will look brilliant when it's finished.

    Fill a Tupperware container with water and freeze it, leave it to defrost in front of a fan, hey presto air conditioning!
