Wow I have never seen this one. It's amazing. I still love his silver one though.

Imagine being over 90 and forced to wear this thing for who-knows-how-long ... (Leo XIII died in 1903, aged 93).

They could make a lighter-weight one for a delicate Pope. They did something like that for Queen Victoria.
