Below the medallions is a band inscribed with a dedication in square filled letters it reads: זה הכתר נדור שמואל יוסיף בן יונה וגם אישתו רחל בת ליבער ראבינסקי שנת תר"ה נ )?( פו )פה?( זלאטיפאלי "This Crown was vowed by Samuel Yosif son of Jona and his wife Rachel daughter of Liber Rabinsky in the year 605 (=1845) here Zlatipoli."

The upper unit is composed of a band with acanthus leaves that project backward. Eight rounded arms emerge from between the leaves. Each arm is decorated with a foliate scroll bearing flowers and leaves, that converge at the base of the crest.
