Pra Somdej Pae 5000 Ongk Kroo Nuea Bai Lan - 3 Takrut & Powder filled - Luang Por Pae Wat Pikul Tong.) - a Most sought after and highly valued, but still very affordable classic Pim Niyom amulet, that was released in the same year as Pra Somdej Pae 5000, in the year 2534 BE. This is the most popular amulet after the 'Pae Pan' (1000 edition) Famous Amulet released in 2510 BE, and the Pae 2000 and 4000 edition.
The Pae 3000 series was begun in 2512, but was then continued repeatedly and remade until 2533 BE, making the Pae 3000 the larges edition as far as how many produced. There are subtleties which allow experts to determine which year a Pae 3000 came from, for example, in 2516, Muan Sarn Ingredients with red and black mineral crystals were introduced for the first time to the 3000 Series. it was however in 2512 BE when the first ever completely black colored sacred powder Pra Somdej was released, as a Pae 3000. There were no Black Somdej Pae before that.
The Fourth and Fifth edition, the Pae 4000 and 5000, were for reasons stated that the 3000 edition was produced over a longer period, more popular than the Pae 3000.
This edition of Pae 5000 series amulets, were also released after the Pae 4000 edition sacred powders were finished. Each edition has gained in popularity, to become Pra Niyom Master Class Amulets in turn, after each other.
This particular exhibit is an Ongk Kroo Takrut Sam Dork (Masterpiece version with Double Takrut in the base (silver and bronze), and one gold Takrut inserted in the top edge) - Luang Por Pae Wat Pikul Tong (Singhburi) is the maker of this now extremely famous amulet.
Luang Por Pae produced the first ever sacred powder amulets in 2494 BE, sixteen years before the creation of the Somdej Pae Pan (1000). The first Pra Somdej was a Pra Somdej in two Pim models. The second time he made amulets was in 2509 BE, also with 2 different models (Pim). The first Pim has two small Sacred Yant on the rear side, (Luang Por's traditional Pu-Sorn Yantra), and the second Pim bearing the sitting image of Luang Por Pae on the rear face.
Free Waterproof Casing is included with this amulet.
Luang Por Pae 1000, 2000, 4000 are the most highly valued and sought after (and rarest) of all the different series,, because these were the editions which made the least numbers of amulets, increasing their rarity.
There were also smaller 'Pim Kanaen' models in each edition, which had also usually two different styles of miniature Somdej amulet released; One with a full frontal image of Luang por Pae on the back, and the second tier of the Buddha's dais having a 'Thaan Singh' (lion legs). The other model has a design similar to the Thai number eight on the rear face, and no lion legs (tabvle legs) on the Dais/Pedestal of the Buddha. Neither miniature 'Pim Kanaen' model had any lettering statiung the edition. A Total of Nine Pae Pan++ editions were made in all.
Each edition became more popular rarer, and more expensive as a new series was released, but all if the five series are now considered both ultra rare, as well as being viewed as classic Master Class Amulets, which carry great prestige, and a respectably high price category, fitting of an amulet of its status. It is indeed a rare opportunity indeed these days to find an example of Pra Somdej Pae 4000 in such Pristine Condition still available.
The Luang Por Pae 2000 Pra Somdej Amulet, and the Pae 1000 edition of 2510 BE, are Luang Por Pae's most sought after and popular amulets, even more than many of the 'Sai Rung' rainbow colored versions, due to te fact that it is a much older and rarer edition, and that it is highly regarded in competition and collector circles, as a Classic Pim Niyom Amulet. The Pae 1000, 2000 and 3000 are now entering into the very high price ranges, leaving the Pra Somdej Pae 4000, and 5000 as the remaining attractive items for their still affordable price range.
The back face of the amulet has the traditional name of 'Pae' (แพ) embossed, with the number 'four' (๔), and the word 'Pan'(พัน), meaning 'thousand' - as well as the pink ink of the rubber stamp is visible, which authenticates, and ensures a highly regarded example of status, because not all of these amulets have the ink from the stamp on them, and those which do, are much more preferred by collectors and possess much more chance of a prize in competition.
