Underneath your large block to write your post or to reply to a post, the is a lest of 5-6 procedures to improve/add to what you posted. One of the lines is a "tutorial" to post an image, but there are size restrictions, so make sure that you crop out all of the excess part of the photo.

In the 2011 Charlton with the Vicky varieties, we included 4 different repunched 7's, the underpunch showing in 4 different areas. Try to get all 4.

I sent you an answer back, p 319.

There were almost as many different positions of the over/under repunches on the 7 as there were dies. The last digit was handpunched into the die and it took 2-3 whacks with the punch to get the impression deep enough. It may have been hours, days or weeks between the individual whacks because the die had to be annealed(softened) and the punch gardened before each strike. I've always liked the '87's because of the different offsets
