    Too bad you don't have in hand. A little rub with a sponge or some powder would probably clear it up. Maybe look at other Q66 M40 lids here for comparison?

    Did you ask Dave to double check

    I just sent him a email, hope to hear from him in the morning. I do not think it will affect the asking price but I would like to know for my sanity. I did chalk it when I had it,that is why I was sure it was a 68, I have been wrong before. Marty

    At first glance I too thought it was 68 but after I expanded the photo it looked like a 66. But still not 100% sure for me. I think Terry point however is correct.

    Blew it up, sharpened it, the second digit looks identical to the first one at high magnification.

    Dave sent me a email this morning? "Trust me on this. Itís a 66. Plus it is not big in like a 68, and the liner is 59. If it were a 68 the liner would have to be a 60 or 61."

    Thanks, Dave

    I guess that is the end of the disscussion.
