memorial shoe close up

Here is a close up of the memorial horseshoe I did. It is hard to get the details in one picture so I will try to show you another view. This is the rt side which shows the year he died engraved on the nailheads along with his registration number. The year of birth is on the left set of nailheads. His brand is done in inlayed silver, and you can see part of the engraving on the toe. No alterations were done to the shoe other than some light sanding to make the surface better for engraving, and it was cold blued when completed. It was quite a project making a fitted case and presentation plate for it. I'm not sure I want to try doing a fitted case again, but I now know where I can get one professionaly made for a reasonable price.
