Geez, they look like the bricks on our back steps, which are getting demo'd soon. I'll check 'em later.

Re: Broken Brick Need Help ASAP

I believe the brick are very poor examples of their breed, culled brick used for a driveway border...

Close examination of the pictures show the roman sized split pavers? 3.625" nominal X 11.625" nominal X 1.625" nominal were 'raked' or 'brushed' and the raked clay 'spoil' not removed, but smashed back into the face and then fired, weather un-culled, or intentional???? who now knows?

It is not the Mona lisa, get some 12" long solids near the same color and install and drive on.
No one can expect a 50 year old concrete or rare sized bricks to be matched...

No contract can be formed when it requires something that is impossible with current tech and or funds. That is Business 101.

Next time use prophylactic devices(oxymoron?) for antique drives and sidewalks...
