This illustration first appeared in a catalog of a sale held by Frederick Mulller & Co., Amsterdam in May 1869. Item 1368, as the catalog designated it, was described as a "projet" (design) for the coat-of-arms of New Amsterdam in the Dutch colony of New Netherland, now New York. It represents the arms of the city of Amsterdam surmounted by the imperial crown and between two beavers instead of two rampant lions. At the bottom Bontemantel has written that the "projet" was rejected.
