    Head Measuring...

    Here we go, 2 heads. Both fully dried out and on the wifes kitchen scales weigh - head 1 635.02
    head 2 630.49
    Obviously head one uncut, decent shape and pearling, head two cut and 8 points....

    Are they worth getting measured ? If so could take along to Scone

    Whats your guesses gentlemen .....

    Ok.... effin eeit that I am..... As the missus informed me!

    My weights were wrong.... The uncut head weighs 550g and the cut head weighs 540g

    Easy seen I dont do much baking with those scales!

    If you use the Swedish Formula on these, which is, skull weight x0.23 +20 you could be looking at gold.

    Still worth measuring, it's very hard to say from photos but I'd say definite silvers maybe gold.

    Both should still make medals, and worth getting measured.
