I'm digging into the recesses of my collection and putting up the small treasures I have held onto for decades, as I finally downsize as I move into retirement.
This is part of a large collection of Thai amulets I purchased almost 25 years ago from an American who had lived in Thailand during the 1960s. He had gotten deeply into studying these amulets and collecting them. I purchased a number of them that I thought were the best, I held on to them all these years as I could not bear to part with them (until now)
I am not knowledgeable enough to be able to tell you which Temple-I do think it is from Chian Sen in the North of Thailand from the earliest period-RARE. I can tell you that it is authentic.
