Poppy limited edition?

Does anybody has information/photos of a - what I was told - limited poppy edition that comes in a box and the blossom center is made out of actual WW1 shell cone brass material from the battlefields?

Thanks to both of you!

Now I understand the present I received from a participant of a Remembrance Day ceremony. He was so overwhelmed by my speech in a theatre with some 6-800 Brits attending that he passed his poppy pin to me as a token of appreciation.

The box he promised will be sent by mail.

I will honor this gift even more, now that I understand its Story.

Today I received via mail the corresponding box.

The gift was given to me from Phil, one of the some 600 British attendees in recognition of my Remembrance Day speech.

By now I understand the value and meaning of the pin (thanks to the contributors here from GWF) for which I am so grateful and I'd like to share some pictures of my first 2014 Christmas present.

Luckily the pin and the box are now re-united and will have a special place in my heart and on a display shelve here. Thanks Phil G. from Oxfordshire for a wonderful gesture!

Do you want me to disclose the contents sometime later?

Ah, I am too late to reply! It's beautiful Egbert.
