What a difference!
Definitely no flame pontil mark. I'm also still of the opinion that Azurene weights are not cased. And that the foil in this weight simply does not look at all right - it's far too crudely made.
However, I hope your new found camera skills help your sales.
Good, clear images look so much more professional.  :thup:
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thanks for that info, Sue.  :)
Chris, the MDG label is fine on the doggy-cat - I've got one and a half of them. :thup:
