Some information on Phra Somdej Wat Rakhang amulets :
Somdej Buddhacharn Toh made his famous Somdej Amulets over different periods of the Rama Dynasty and can be classified as follow :
a) 1st Period - Rama 2, year 2352-2367
b) 2nd Period - Rama 3, year 2367-2392
c) 3rd Period - Rama 4, year 2394-2410 & Rama 5, year 2411-2453.
The 3rd Period Phra Somdej is considered to be the most beautiful as it has less cracks as compare to the 1st & 2nd Period and also the most expensive in the market.
No two Phra Somdej WRK are indentical in every aspect of its quality even if it was made from the same Mold as well as its colour and texture. The colour can range from White, Cream, Light Brown, Light Greyish, Light Yellowish etc.
Beside Phra Somdej, Somdej Buddhacharn Toh also made other Pims like Phra Nang Phaya, Phra Soomkor, Phra Leela, Phra Pong Suphan, Phra Rod and Phra Pidta just to name a few.
