Thank you for such a interesting and constructive blog on the Cholmschild which I feel will lay many ghosts to rest regarding this scarce award,

Congratulations Sascha
Cholm shields are getting rarer by the day and you managed to find an excellent example in good condition.

Well done and thanks for sharing your story with us.
