Hyphen Hole 14 Variety

Following the previous post on roulette varieties, JW Palmer sent in examples of the major hyphen-hole variety, the so-called roulette 14.  Scott refers to this hyphen hole variety as an "apparent roulette 14 caused by the slippage of a hyphen-hole 7 roulette wheel."

Below, from JW's collection, is a presentation of how this variety came to exist.  Exactly how this is a "slippage" issue according to Scott I am not sure.  The R163 sheet below shows how there can be a transition from proper HH perfs to HH14s within the same sheet.
