What a GREAT board this is!
Dale, thank you VERY much (wish mine was as clear). Now, I also know the orientation as well. It was clear from the Newsletters that such a cartouche definitely exists, on both '68s and '70s.
I just do not look at 1868s as closely as I should, but, beyond the difference in date stamp, they're pretty "bland". I have a nice one dated 1870, and have been promised an 1868 date (which is rare) at some point in the future. I guess I "should" get an 1869 to 'complete the set', but with the economy (both general AND personal) as it is, that seems a bit of a luxury, whereas the early "trials"1870 is a rare variant, and actually has a different physical appearance, due to the sight change..
