Comments

Lapel varieties (Elie 2003, p. 443):
El Mon.# 10.2a: without triangle under the 10, with rhombus on the right.
El Mon.# 10.2b: with triangle below the 10, without rhombus on the right.

The latter variety (El Mon.# 10.2b) also appears to have the rhombus on the right, but only very slightly(https://wikicollection.fr/?p=24830). Only the presence/absence of the triangle under the 10 distinguishes the two varieties.Automatically translated
