I agree with Brigitte.
They used the same mold and changed the stones. If I remember right the stones in the first Palace were very hard to get a good one. Some fell out and some were chipped and the "awnings"were crooked. The base that came with the first Palace fits the second one.
IMHO the second one looks better and the "gold "matches the tower. The first one the gold is shinier.
Brigitte and I share the same passion.
