Coat of Arms on a shield

Postby Steven Madewell » 10 Jan 2019, 10:03

So, I've been wanting a shield of my own since I was eight years old. I'm going to blame Captain America for that! Sadly, one can only do so much with the lid from an aluminum dustbin. Anyway, I recently hired Grayson Burgess on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/ComicSandwiches) to make a shield for me bearing my personal coat of arms that was registered with the South African Bureau of Heraldry. Grayson did a fantastic job and it only took him a couple of weeks. He kept me posted throughout the process and he addressed all my concerns and he exceeded all my expectations. I'm very, very happy with the results!

Impressive. What more can one say? It looks as though it has been "made well"!

How large is it?

Thanks! The shield measures 17"x24" (43.18cm by 60.96cm). It also has straps on the back, should I desire to use it for cosplay, etc. That being said, it'll probably just hang on the wall for display. :)
