Employing the static hyperfine fields at cerium nuclei in magnetized Fe and Gd hosts, the g-factor of the 134Ce(10+) state at backbending (Ex = 3719.3 keV) has been determined as g = - 0.30 (25). The coexistence of this neutron-dominated state with the (vh 11 2)n 10+ isomer (Ex = 3208.5 keV, g = -0.19(1)) is unexpected. A comprehensive spectroscopic study following the 122Sn(16O, 4n) reaction, including γ-angular distributions, prompt and delayed γ coincidence and recoil-distance measurements has yielded new information on quasi-collective bands of both parities. The properties of the low-lying positive-parity states are well described by the interacting boson model.
