  • Notes
    Found October 28, 1886. A large portion of Special Register section 7 (volumes 13-16) was originally misnumbered, with the object numbers following in sequence from section 1 volume 4; these numbers have thus been given EMC_SR_1 prefixes, despite being recorded in section 7. Hence this figurine is EMC_SR_1/11716. The SR numbering was then ammended to the proper section 7 sequence, and this object was given number EMC_SR_7/20788.
