HIST: Coronation - I think

Can anyone verify that this is 'Coronation' - or not?
It is a common plant in gardens in this region, another "hand-me-down" / "pass-it-around" plant.  It flowers late (in fact it is probably going to be the last bearded to have a flower open here this year, but there are still a few stragglers on others, so the contest for last isn't over yet).
It is not obvious in the photo, but the dark base to the tepals is striking.  There is no PBF.  It is smallish, perhaps reaches TB height in other gardens, but usually IB here.  Looks diploid.  Very drought tolerant and a survivor.
