Who in Nepal had a hat worth $100000 in 1899?

Who in Nepal had a hat worth $100,000 back in 1899?
Sir Jung Bahadur Rana, the Prime Minister of Nepal till 1877. He had a hat made of diamonds worth over $100,000 with a single ruby perched on top which was of incalculable value. Is this the hat (see pic) that was referred to in the Arizona Weekly Daily Minerdated July 12, 1899? I wonder what it's present worth would be and who has it now?
