Comments:
by Lewis Cowen:
Cowen only records this double with the top silk woven in gold, not the blue of the image above.

Other comments:
This double silk version was supposed to only be issued with the top silk having a gold background, as recorded in the obk88 record. The blue background silk was only issued as a single silk, and it is not known why this blue background silk was mounted in the double mount.
