Several European museums hold a copy of this plate, notably the Bargello in Florence, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Grass Museum in Leipzig. The one in the Bargello bears the inscription BRVG in the lower part, referring to the entry of Emperor Maximilian I into Bruges in 1494. None of these other examples has a cord around the edge.
