Quote from: UK Decimal + on January 08, 2010, 03:50:44 PMBack to the 'hands' of 1973, the only version that I have heard about is the one that I used in the main narrative.I'm posting the illustration of the reverse again and you will note that every hand is different in some way. One of them has to be the smallest. I cannot imagine that the heads of state posed for the design so the hands are probably shown at the designer's whim. 'Artistic licence' probably applies here.Bill.
