By the look of the colons it appears to be Obv A I give up looking at pictures they lie lol. No idea now from your blow up its obverse 1 and 2 but the thinner P if it is lol edges me towards obverse 2:o:rolleyes:. Changed my mind again there is no way the the P can be right of the tooth so it must be Obverse 1 and that is my final vote from the swedish jury :)

 

I can only thank the Swedish jury for their vote:blink: although it has crashed my brain completely:huh:

I checked out Secret Santa's website and it mentions the P in IMP but nothing about colons. Nothing in the Freeman book either. What am I looking for regarding the colons?

obv 1 P of IMP points directly to a border tooth

I of IMP points to the left of a border tooth

The colon before IMP nearly points to a border tooth

The dot after IMP is small 

The letter P is thinner

 

OBV2

The vertical stroke of P is slightly right of a border tooth

The I of IMP points to the right of a border tooth

The colon before IMP points to a space

The dot after  IMP is larger

THe letter P is thicker

That is obverse 2  :)

But imo the stroke of P is almost dead center But you have the I and the large stop as quantifying markers
