Simon (NJR100) is constantly referring to die 34 (specifically 34000013), whereas others talk about the batch ID, which may be the same for different dies... right?
edit: and indeed, I would trust resources like this forum better than magazines like agw or ags (less exclamation marks). I assume that pax is a major regular advertiser?
Die number is what i have found to be the deciding factor.
7 or 8 figure number along top of label contains such. I only really take notice of the die number, which is either first number if low die such as die 5 or double such as die 34. etc.
I have die 36 from 2011 and 2012, both are mega so i dont take too much notice of year and none of operator / quality - middle numbers.
I take no notice of the myth number as to have found most to to be around 4.46 - 48.
The batch number (single sigure on own) could prove to be important, in theory, I have never gone on that either though as a good die works.
then sells out lol
