Jean, I have no doubt at all that Dresden 2886 was collected in Banten, but where it was collected, when it was collected, is really of no interest to me at all.

If it had been collected in New York...

David, I believe that the only way anybody can actually get any understanding at all of the Dresden keris is to obtain permission from the relevant curator to examine them.

Typically the Banten wilah has a boto adeg blumbangan, the blumbangan of this keris is...
