Erik, you mention the Lopah Petawaran in your article, that it was in use in Aceh and in the Batak lands.
Do you know of an example which shows more Aceh features as Batak?

suassa crowns.

PS. Ever have seen anything like this? Suassa crowns, in the same style as the golden crowns?

Is this also unique, or "only" very rare? Are there others like this in someones collection?
