This is a LP Hin Somdej Phim
Niyom, Chae NamMont, Wat Rakang, B.E.2488. The Somdejs of this batch
are one of
LP Hin's early-period amulets and now become a hard to find (HTF)
The surface of the Somdej is light brown-grey with some light black
stains because it was soaked in holy water (Chae NamMont) for along
Apart from that, soaking the Somdej in holy water for a long time
has caused its content becoming strong and sand like particles
produced on the surface.
The Somdej is much prefered by professional
collectors due to its good great physical appearances: a) Nua Jaad
b) Nua Kieaw. It means that the Somdej has two popular classic
Nua Jaad = abstract feelings
of a baked clay or holy powder amulet that has classic & strong
appearance together with a slightly shinning look as found on
the surface of some multi-million Baht amulets such as Somdej Wat Rakang,
Somdej Bang- KhunPhrom, Soomkor, and Leela Med Khanoon, etc.
Nua Kieaw = a very light green surface--using 10x magnified
lens to view the Somdej, you will see its surface is very light green
in color. Any holy-powder Somdej of Nua Kieaw is categorized as a classic
characteristic prefered by professional collectors
The Somdej was mixed with LP Hin himself's
holy powder and also a large quantity of ground fragments of Somdej
Wat Rakang (SWR) and Somdej PhraPilan which have content of grey,
green, or black.
It's known in among
professional collectors that LP Hin's Somdejs and LP Nak's Somdejs
have same, equal properties & efficacies. And Somdej amulets of the
two great LPs can equally be used as substitution to the
multi-million Baht old-version SWRs with an economy price.
