This is forty-nine maces for forty-five customers. Maces aren't inexpensive but the ones I make appear to be very well received from both design and cost perspectives. Sometimes funding is an issue for the school. Sometimes it is design debates. The most important thing is to be sure that the final product is something which the school will cherish for decades to come. These maces should last at least a hundred years.
