Default sweet Calgary Tanks

Here's a sweet little oddity from today's mail: reversed metal Calgary Tanks that someone has very carefully silver, and I think, gold plated to 'correct' the badge. Only the highlights on the crown, leaves and flowers, and the unicorn and bull fronts have been silver plated, and the shield, scroll and halo overlays are either gold plated or have been replaced with brass pieces (I don't think I want to scratch through one to find out). Back view shows the untouched brass base. Much, much prettier in hand than in the scanner glare. I'm a happy little collector today
