1. November 2010, from Leroy, " Slight doubling on designer's initial M barely noticable with 10x hand glass. Only a few hair strands dbld in lower hair-not like VAM-13. Yes, Possibly could be top of 7 in denticle space below left 8 but no top above denticle to be sure. Only have slanted bar to go on which isn't conclusive enough to say 7 top. Show as gouge to at least point out to reader. Slight dbling on arrow heads 7 on arrow shaft to minor to list. Added to description " A few hair starnds in lower hair slightly dbld" which will be in 2010 supplement.
