Hi m

I suspect the author refers to a similar weight, rather than that specific one, as there would  be 30 heads in mine viewed from both sides.  But Bob Hall's book shows one with a ring of 29 heads (ie 58 counting from both sides).....and there are probably a few others around.

I have sent you an email- probably no help as just a thought,  but might be.
