    Thanks for the lesson on the "Tit on the T". May I kindly ask, what makes you think #4 is a July 9th, and what you mean by reverse binding (since many non-July 9th Loars have this side-bound head stock)?

    I have also heard it referred to as a "Hanging dot".

    reversed binding and side bound are same thing. Reversed meaning it's opposite of the regular binding. Kinda hard to explain other than catalog binding states top bound with white/black/white binding. So reversed would mean it's not on the top but on the side and side bounding means the top binding is moved to the side. I remember in the old days everyone said Monroe's had "reversed binding" and then they started to say it was "side binding". What do you call those new ones that have it both ways? Got me!

ID:	154511 I know No. 4 is a July 9th side bound because I took that photo while it was in a 50's pink lined case. Serial No. 74000. More photos in archives. Here is photo of same truss rod cover on another mandolin.

    I'd call them "the more the merrier".
