So far, CANDELS+CLASH has uncovered more than 100 supernovae of all types that exploded from 2.4 to over 10 billion years ago. The team has identified eight of these discoveries as Type Ia supernovae that exploded more than 9 billion years ago -- including this new record-breaker, which pushes the record roughly 350 million years further back in time.
It looks a bona fide candidate.  :)
