- Greg Franck-Weiby memorial medal from Matthias.
These are not finished, but I thought I would post them now.
When he has them finished I will post the final results as well.
The portrait of Ian is amazing.

Last weekend I made a memento mori medal. Contrary to the Romans and
Christians where the memento mori is refering to the own death this
memento mori is for the others. The skull is halve an inch high and
Greg's portrait is from this weekend. The photo with the hat reminded
me of the medal of Hans Kraft. I tried to match the style even so it
is not so deep (just 0.3mm) and big (a bit over 13mm high). The whole
coin will have a diameter of 20mm. I will add the lettering and make
the backside when I do have suitable letter punches.
