Comments

The weight can vary from 3.65 to 4.23 g.

Regarding open and closed digits:
These are not different dies but striking varieties, therefore artefacts punched with obstructed dies. For  varieties lovers, we can simply note that all 2 exist either open or closed, but that they are closed only by a small residue of metal that got stuck there and not because of a differentl design die. We note the existence of 2 incompletely closed.
Extract from Franc 10
