Back at it again,
This is the next one for investigation. I see it as Variety 8 having 1 extra line at right with two inner lines. This combination narrows it to 5 options - 58,68,78,88. and 98 L3.
Easy to remove
68 ruled out no lower right guide dot in mine
88 rules out no recut in upper left in mine
78 Bottom Frame Line Curves Upward and is Doubled Under THRE of THREE bottom - I detect no real doubling but it the line does appear to curve up.
58 (relief A) & 98 (relief B) -I selected 58. Honestly in some cases the variance between these reliefs is tough to see. I think I see a notch in the top of the oval but not sure. Also I detect what I believe is a single large break in lower oval area. Unfortunately I also detect a weak boarder line at the right of the bust vs a stronger one expected or Relief A.
Once again, learning the ropes. I recognize I can also try to the compression concept regarding the framelines but have not gotten to that process yet. In direct visual comparison the right outer frameline in 58 seems to align more to my stamp than than the 98.
You might notice I moved away from calendar dated items to focus on a recent acquisition containing a number of recut varieties. I am working to confirm what the previous collector described although they did not actually plate the items. As always - any input/corrections are appreciated.
