Yeah, we just say THC because it's easier than saying LCV or SCV and honestly, if I don't see the two next to each other, I can never remember which is which, because the difference is subtle.
Also, I usually don't believe anything I read on chipgiude - use it like wikipedia; it is a jumping off point to further research.
What the hell exactly is ORHC - oversized RHC? Do they just mean an RHC with an oversized inlay?
There are multiple versions of THC molds. Some have a shorter cane, some have a longer cane and some actually have one version on each side? The differences are subtle and I need to see them side by side to tell you for sure.
But for 95% of the PCF population, it’s enough to know it’s a Paulson THC
Here is my post from another thread:Here are a few quotes about LCV and SCV - I'll add them to help cut down on confusion though
Fascinating link, thank you. And that auction…!Here is my post from another thread:
The hat and cane mold has multiple versions including LCV--long cane version and SCV---short cane version. If you look closely you will see the cane going through the hat is very long and the end of the cane does not go below the brim of the hat. The SCV version is shorter and the end of the cane is closer to and dips just below the brim of the hat. They also have Inverted Hat and Cane and Reverse Hat and Cane, Fat Hat, etc. versions of the mold. The LCV and SCV differences can be seen in the pictures below. SCV is on the top and LCV on bottom (credit: Robert Eisenstadt's excellent mold design resource webpage, which can be found here : http://www.antiquegamblingchips.com/molddesignindex_site.htm)
