[ModLib] 28.1 Buckram

I have noted two buckram bound styles of G28.1:
1.  Green, black spine contrast with no oval or torchbearer.  See pic 
below captured from the internet.
2.  Brown, burgundy spine contrast with all the usual attributes of the 
BG1(d), dated Spring 1964 by the list of Giants catalog at rear of 
text.  See other pic from my shelves.
I cannot give an educated guess at this time concerning the cause of 
variation #1, although has been the only instance I have seen a lack of 
oval, torchbearer and contrast (together) on any buckram giant binding.  
However, I do not have every buckram yet and they continue to turn up.
