” Blackbirds tend to like Shiny Things” ~ The Bloody Raven
His name is Michael; a Stacker, collector and a new Silver Art Pourer. I came across his Instagram page over a year ago and you may already understand how I instantly became enamored with his first Logo Hex Bar, a perfect match made in hello….. oh yes, I got a lot of goodies with it too.
For this piece Michael got his inspiration from Norse mythology as I can identify elements of the Rune Ring like the one used in conjunction with the Valknut (Odin’s knot) or the Viking symbol of Victory and Protection, the Aegishjalmur. The two Crow heads and silhouette inside the ring are not Odin’s Ravens Huginn and Muninn and are a distinctly different from their smaller counterparts.
I didn’t want to impose on the new budding Pourer and that the first Hex was the priority piece I really wanted. Yet, I can understand that he wanted to send me a gift to make amend for his oversight.
Other than that, even though I paid for 1 oz, Hexes the actual weights are more than promised as this Hex was 0.2 oz over. (The @stokjockey Vintage bar effect.)
I insisted on keeping this ‘Rare’ Error strike and that it may be worth more!
So he promised to send me something nice.... He asked, “What size do you wear?”
With all the goodies; the extra 0.3 oz. silver, stickers, Certificate of authenticity, fridge magnet, trademark stamped burlap bag, and Tee shirt Michael is not going to get rich with this hobby. But I am especially pleased with having his first logo Hex bars.
To you Collectors out there, do you collect by theme, style, or simply what you like?
