Quite true, but that information is so inaccessible, in spite of Robert Tye's great contribution 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.
