Exbor Fish
« on: December 18, 2006, 06:57:54 PM »
Thought you might like to see my latest purchase - an Exbor fish.  :D

I've got a bit of a thing about Exbor, but can never afford it sadly.  I bought this one in a charity shop in Canterbury today, and it's the second piece of damaged Exbor I have now.  He's got pretty serious chips to his tail - but what are a few chips between friends?

He's 27cm long and has the acid etched 'Exbor' mark and what looks like an original sticker with '70296/M' on it.  He's engraved with loose fin marks and an eye each side.

Super, isn't he?
I am not a man

Well found! I keep looking for Exbor items but, like you, find the price just keeps sliding out of my range. But you can't have a fish without some chips...

Post that young chap off to Frank's zoo, methinks :D
