(if what I was told is correct) this was added to LE weights with a minor(!) flaw, to make it sufficiently different from the limited edition design, and thus be allowed to sell it as second.
This is very interesting information, Wolf. Were you told whether this was a general rule which applied to all
seconds of limited editions? I had always thought that the CIIG on the base was the only thing that made seconds different from the perfect weights, and that differences such as leaving a weight un-faceted were simply because it was not worth expending additional time and effort on a second, rather than an attempt to make it deliberately different. It seems a little strange to me to deliberately add
a feature such as the etching around the dragonfly weight - obviously involving more
time and effort! - just in order to sell it as a second!
