Quite true, but that information is so inaccessible, in spite of Robert Tye's great contribution Jitals (https://www.academia.edu/356700/Jitals), that they remain relatively cheap, to the delight of those who sacrificed half of their hair and years of their life to being able to read the info. :D

Gentlemen, you are on to something good here. Just like it is useful for coins in this style/region/period to have several specimen in your collection, it is a good idea to have several specimen in a thread to compare and get an idea of what the whole die would have looked like. Keep them coming, please.
