Interestingly... these batch numbers were available from Olga last month...

16060015 1 (marked as 4.51)
16070015 3 (marked as 4.52)

Same die, same year - different batch - different head size marked on the tin. Explain that?
Got some express like that... but they were 0 and then 1.

Does it ever happen in reverse? If not, there's a theory brewing right there.
