Comments

[u] Regarding open and closed figures: [/ u]
These are not different corners but varieties of striking, therefore artifacts with obstructed corners. For lovers of these varieties, we can simply note that all 2 exist either open or closed, but that they are closed only by a small remnant of metal which got stuck there and not because of a corner differently engraved. We note the existence of 2 incompletely closed.
Extract from Franc 10
