    And people know that, so they don’t need a heads up, when stuff’s happening ;)

    Hi Sune,

    I like your site – a lot of work has obviously gone into it :-)

    Not to throw a spanner in the works, but just a ‘heads up’ on a couple of things:

    I see that a lot of photos are "copyright ordersandmedals.net" (kudos to you for always trying to get the copyrights under the photos), but a lot of the photos on that site are clearly taken from auction catalogues from Bruun Rasmussen and Thomas Hoiland, without stating so under the photos. Now, whether that site has the right to use those photos I can’t say, but it is something you should be aware of.

    I also see that quite a few of your photos are from Liverpool Medals, but be aware that some of them are – how can I put it politely – ‘non-originals’… in some cases these are quite different from the originals.

    But keep up the good work!

    /Michael

    Hi Great Dane.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    I’ve been in contact with ordersandmedals.net before using their pictures – As I always do, when I need to borrow stuff – and they’ve said I could use the images.
    I have to assume that they have ownership of the images – Otherwise they can’t lend out the images to me…. Right? :roll:
    On the other hand, should they be "stolen" and someone was to contact me, I would ofcourse remove the images from skibden.dk ASAP.

    I also know that a lot of the liverpool medals medals are "creative".. I’ve seen loads of strange mounts, wrong ribbons and wierd inscriptions..
    – I do try to make sure the images are correct, by reading the official description of the medal and comparing to the image, but if you see anything on the website that’s completely off, please let me know :)
