60ft under coral slabs on reef, 1959. From an old American collector. Nominotypical rashleighana. The shells was dead collected, but it is shining and rather fresh looking, with very minor flaws only. Comes with full data. The inked number at the basis may be either easily removed with water and brush or kept with this old American collection specimen.
