For years I could find nothing, then, somewhere, I saw something that said it had to do with the comb (NOT the arch) of the block. This makes NO sense to me, but apparently it was a big deal to them.
Since a HUGE change took place in late 1878, I have no idea why - in 1879/80 - they did not simply recall all of the easily distinguished narrow-receivered arms.
