Bible with a minervahead?

Post by Vantlicht »

This Bible has no marks at all. Only a minerva head. But is it a minerva head? It doesn't look similair to the Dutch minervaheads I know. Who can tell me more about this minervahead?
Thanks in advance!

Of course it is a Minerva head, what else could it be? Used from 1814-1905. In its helmet the faded regional assay office letter E for Groningen.

The missing silver marks may be on the inside of the silver clasp that attaches it to the book cover.
