    Tom, 1954 model S-L frames were made as early as April 54. And maybe earlier? Also used for 54 were two types of wishbone and Palmer described all three frames in his 37–64 SE but the changeover...

    Can you post that blueprint because I’m sure a lot of people would like to see it, especially those who own 54s. It could also be placed in the AMCA virtual library for future reference.

    Thanks for the photo. As I mentioned in my email, first character still looks like the letter I. It still appears to be sans serif which is what I’d expect and all my examples look the same as yours....

    Re Palmer’s first edition: first version $26.95; second version $29.95; third version $39.95. Yours sounds like the second version which means it contains over 400 known errors.

    According to Palmer’s SE, die number 14 was on the left clip for 1950–52. He has no entry for 1953 and then he goes to die 15 for 1954–55. However, maybe 14 could also have been used for some 54s?

    Where possible it’s a good idea to look at more than one area of Palmer’s books because at times they contradict themselves. Although page 276 is wrong, the top caption on page 574 is right, as is...
