    Chrissy,

    Thank you.


    It is odd that not one of all the rest who have previously thought so.

    The better images speak for themselves.

    I believe that was my indication all the way back in post #4.

    and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter."

    @proteus I don't think it's odd at all. I thought my memory was failing me so I went back and read through this thread again. With respect, everyone apart from yourself, was sure it was a repair and said so. It seemed like you were on the fence requesting better images for a while.
    It was always a repaired pen from the original images, and it still is. No mystery at all. Nothing odd about it.

    Clearly I am getting old and stupid.

    Lost my art of communication.

    Perhaps these are better words.

    Which goes against all that has been said.


    I believe that this cap in the last images shown has not been unrestored and just partially cracked.
