Mitch, what do you make of this?

Post by Albannach » Wed Aug 30, 2023 9:01 pm

Ok so I had a bit of trouble staying in my lane recently...89-o 13A (ish)

Since I'm outside my area I saw Mitch has notes on the 13A page referring to the 13A clashed specimen and LFPC for crack pattern...I see the n and need to know more about this. Not 100% on a t clash but the line is in the crook that runs through the t from wing, on the back.

More pics on request, if anyone is interested.

98-I dyslexia I guess.
I will look harder at it and add more pics
The crack pattern rev is 13A, but it’s later than clash2 or 3 by the comp page.
More tonight after work
Thanks for looking

I can't see enough of it to make a call . When Mitch says 23 family . I go to that link . 23 has been renumbered to 14a .the additional comments on the 14 a page sound a lot like what you are juggling with ,. including a grey area between 14 and 14 a .... The page says it can be confused with 13a pretty easily .... Looking forward to pictures of any bulge below tail feathers and the bow. http://vamworld.com/wiki/1898-O_VAM-14A Good Luck man! PS IF you really can see the n, it might be new ,,, or not :lol:

14(23) Mitch is correct.
Is it the "A"? I can't say for sure...
The bow crack is less advanced than the 14A pics. I'm not seeing the bulge under TF, just a couple thick file marks. The "first 8 seems doubled inside L the ellipse's not under as pictured (which I would call MDD). Second 8 is doubled as VAM 2 and the cap "gouge" thing.

I doubt I will send this anywhere, but be advised, it has faint transfer of the n, t, & M.

THANK YOU again for the assist guys!

I think I can I say 14A?
I took it out of the plastic, much better :)

I do get a shadow under the TF and above the MM, that seems to match up to the V23 plate shots.

Please add them to the page if they are worthy.
