My figures for Castleton are:
1. 13.10, 5.83
2. 12.88, 5.84
3. 11.77, 5.88
4. 11.53, 5.83
5. 11.55, 5.82
6. 11.51, 5.86
7. 11.48, 5.83
8. 11.63, 5.78
Thus you can see the later two treble are taller than the rest which are
similar. The shoulder diameters are reasonably close together.
Would the photos scan?
