111 and 111a are a good example of two cobs that differ only by “stretch”. The arrangement is essentially identical on the two cobs but one is stretched out longer on the cob than the other. Because the tune is arranged in three revolutions the pins in the second and third revolutions for a single note will appear to be shifted to the right or left. On these two cobs you can see similar patterns of pins that are slanted diagonally to the left on one and to the right on the other. The pinning pattern for the copy of 111e pictured is the same as the Black Label Cobs version.
