Thanks again Overlord. I find your diagrams really helpful! 
As for the missing year,
it makes me want to run to the nearest 16th century Bizarre and yell "hold the coins on the edges you idiots! The way you're doing it, Overlord will never be able to read the date!"

Agreed. Your reconstruction jobs make a coin out of a mess. Bravo!
