Of course this could also be RIC 516 just as easily.  Perhaps one day I'll find a die match.  Until then it's a flip of a coin.  These little things are scarce too--I only own two of them, not for lack of trying--a lot scarcer than C for this one and C2(???) for the other one, RIC 599, a LVDI SAEC specimen.
