Yes, that's one of the ones the one-part computer search comes up with.
Your knowledge of old comps is much better than mine - I wouldn't have
known that was a Pitman. Presumably this has been used in the past for
the method, although the most recent peals seem to have been multi-part
BYROC productions, which unless I'm mistaken would have been pretty nasty.
With a more modern set of musical criteria including little-bell runs,
the rotation of Pitman's starting with the second Home in the 3rd A
block is optimal, giving the following:
(Pitman's rotation gives 66 LB4, and one fewer 65).
But in fact the only other tenors-together peal, a 5088, is better:
The addition of 3V to give the 5024 I showed earlier increases us to:
And, crucially, the resulting peal is remarkably free of duffer courses
for such a false method.
