This seems fairly normal for G&J - photos of their earlier modern peals in particular look like the bells were all cast by different founders at different times (and sometimes sound like it as well!) It's therefore possible to produce a bell of almost any profile and reasonably claim it as G&J profile. They seem to have got gradually more consistent as the decades went by.
