    These are going to be beauties! Not the biggest fan of the EO notch, but would have loved to have scored one of the blood red jigged bone.

    Thanks, everyone!
    Joshua, Nice one! Thanks for sharing it.:thumbsup:

    Here is the 'polished' stag I received. I think mine missed the polishing step, lol.
    No worries, I love it!:cool:

    As we go thru stag, there are always some of those that are too concave or convex; or just not very pretty. So when we get enough set aside we do a run of polished stag. I guess these started life too concave and just didn't have enough belly to polish much. There were all kinds...
