Variant h and j Examples
Variant h indicates that the cancel design is in heavier (thicker) lines than normal
Variant j indicates that the cancel design is in lighter (thinner) lines than normal.
The following cancel is classified as Type 5s
The above example is provided to show a Type 6 cancel with normal line thickness in comparison to the j variant. Granted, the USS Richmond cancel is light and partially obscured, but is seems like the difference between the two is very subtle.
