Okay, I was confused because of way you worded the original post, so it was actually replaced and that replacement was also stolen, it is unfortunate there ae people who have no propriety whatsoever, to deface or remove a memorial to the dead is truly sickening.

I agree about original but I know of a memorial which was made out of brass and has been stolen a couple of times so they switched to cast aluminum and had it painted brass and it has not been stolen yet after 10 years..... The original brass one is inside the building it represents.....
