    Although using familiar panda poses, its done in a refreshing and original way. And the off center design works perfect and seems it takes a master artist to apply the basic knowledge from photography; compositions are better off center. Can you post a in hand image Andy, if you find one? It almost look too good to be true.

    I do not buy this item at the moment. The pricing is too confuse in china.

    The big distributor who sell Gold and silver china coin like Xu Hong will get it at 800 rmb per piece for xx quantity to reward his past year sell result and target. However the market sell it much higher.

    Many supply yet to release in market. Price tend to drop after supply releasing to market. This is the past trend of some other items by china gold corporate

    I'm all for free markets so long as the imitations indicate that they are such. Otherwise, it's just deception or fraud.

    Lucky's web site sells this, for US$340 shipped. Do not count on the price going lower for this one.

    "German silver" technically has no silver in it....it's a nickeled or zinked brass that looks a lot like silver.

    No. I seem to share some of the same tastes as missinglink as I do with you and other members in this forum

    Great pics, btw. I saw this on eBay just today: https://www.ebay.com/itm/183032441980?ul_noapp=true
