  • The only way I can see of telling the difference between the FCP and the ACP issue in daylight is that the FCP appears a bit lighter than its counterpart. Under shortwave UV the ACP issue has a duller appearance.
  • If using a longwave UV on the reverse of 1990.050.01 the head appears clearer through the stamp but looks marked (or blurred). The ACP version in contrast shows a much sharper head outline under the same conditions.
  • If it is from cyl 35 then it must be 1990.050.01. If it is from cyl 36 then it could be either.
