    I know that I must be the only one still thinking 'pirate', however, I have always admired the Letter of Marque replicas that I have seen. I finally got around to attempting the project. I tried different variations but found that I liked the aged parchment best. The size is 8 1/2 X 12. So here is our version of the POTC Letter of Marque.

    It's the weekend so things are a bit slow.

    Very nice.
    Is it printed or done by hand?
    What did you use for the seals?

    You are not the only one thinking pirate, there are many of us!
    Beautiful letter! I'd love one in a leather folder one of these days!

    Thank you.
    Several times I attempted this project but was
    never happy with it's progress. I'd catch POTC on tv
    and get motivated again.

    The scroll on the top and the first two lines are
    done by hand, as well as the signatures on the two
    bottom. The remaining text was all pasted in.

    I do all the calligraphy in our Codex prop by hand,
    but the size of the text in this format on the LOM
    is smaller than I can write.

    Oops. I almost forgot...
    The seals are standard letter
    wax seals by Stuart Houghton.

    Nice work.
    You should post pix of the Codex, I'm sure it would inspire others.

    I just made some modifications to the Codex. That's the
    one in the photo with the LOM.
    I hope to post some pics of it first chance I get.
    The Codex has been a long time project and one of
    my favorite props to work on.
