Iain Dracott mentions it in his description of reverse G in his 2004 article.

Item 4 in his description.

"4.  Some reverse G have missing rocks left of lighthouse, mainly on 1861-1863."

Hi All

This variety is recorded in Peck on page 433 entry 1778 and pictured at Plate 38, I. I also have a specimen dated 1861, which is Freeman dies 7+G with the same 'rocks' missing, which he did not note. Incidentally, has anyone ever considered that those missing 'rocks' are , in fact, a wave breaking over the flatter rocks?
