hgschild asked:

Was this crown from the "King of Ammon" or otherwise..the only crown used by Malchus Beis David? or one of many ?

hgschild, ny usa

The Kollel replies:

Dear hgschild,

Hello there and thanks for your question. I'm sorry for the delay in answering, but I was really searching for someone to refer to this directly. Unfortunately I did not find any explicit source, so I will have to use my own judgment. It would seem from almost all the commentaries that this indeed was his only crown. Rashi in Divrei ha'Yamim I 20:2 explains the verse that this crown was on David's head, that it was situated above his head on the place where he sat. It definitely seems from this Pasuk that this crown which he took from Bnei Amon was his only crown.

All the best.
