The violet arrows to the right are marks of interest and may or may not be consistent. The plating diagrams indicate that no plating marks exist on this position. The GUIDE DOT may be ones only option to definatively plating singles of this position. It should be noted that Ornament "B" is incomplete or short. Though not unique, as 22L, 24, 25L 28L and 30L2 share this feature, it could prove useful in eliminating other positions.
