Rather an unsual style for MH. Possibly rather interesting to weight collectors? ;)

It is my understanding that Kerry, Isle of Man & Guernsey were all "started by Michael Harris as a sort of "franchise" and one presumes the "franchisees" would eventually choose to make their own styles.  Maybe this is one of those.

Yes, (basically  ::) ).

He would give them some of his designs to get them started off with. But he did expect certain standards to be maintained, which didn't always happen and caused some legal problems later, in the case of St. John's, although MH lost the case.
