This prototype differs in several ways from the actual production piece.

  • The center of the frog's crown is a shade of deep purple, whereas the production piece is a light brown in color.

  • The nub and notch to line up the lid with the base are not "GABRIEL" inscribed on Crown Jewel Prototypeon the prototype.

  • With the lid off the prototype box you will see the word "GABRIEL" inscribed at the top of one of the frogs leg. This inscription is not on the production piece.

  • The finish is very glossy, as opposed to the production pieces that were extremely matte in finish.

  • The four identifying hallmarks are inscribed on the lid of the box, however the prototype does not have the crown stamp.

  • The bottom of the base is marked INDY. CLUB PIECE #001.
