I saw you looking hard at something for a long time at Fanfair Kim but didn't realize you were counting dimples.   That's very nice to know in case I find a loose 10 wire cage badge.  I'll count the dimples.  You would probably just count the holes for the S-wires to enter the badge but that's too simple.  Another way to check if 8 or 10 wire cage badge is to measure the depth of the badge.  Good Enough is close enough.   Yes, I know 10 wire cages have no holes in the badge.

As for wrapped and pinned for 1901-1908 I will defer to spending more time observing.
