We observed the SN candidate PSNJ01263469+3137036 using the DBSP spectrograph (Oke & Gun 1993) mounted on the 5m Hale telescope at Palomar Observatory on August 28, 2011. Analysis using the Superfit SN spectral identification code (Howell et al. 2005, ApJ, 634, 1190) shows good fits to type II SNe (e.g., SN 1993W) several months after explosion.
