Case SN in root record contains a "C" at third digit.  I'll correct in root record.  Also case SN suggests 1928, not 1927?

JP states earlier in thread he has this case, and its marked GF (gold filled?).  I can't make out entire inside case back signature to see if subject is Fill or RGP?  This year it could be either.
