Pan head castings

I'm finding more variants than Palmer shows, including 2 different 1956.
What I have so far (appreciate any clear pics!!):

Any more I should list?

Panic I know of 2 original late 1954's with the 1955 type D ring. Casting is the same as 1950 to 54. These bikes both have the straight leg frame. Jerry

Re: Pan head castings

Palmer also says that the FLH (ported) head is labor only, same casting - but I find more casting numbers in this series: 16704 and 16706-55, in which the ports appear to be "as machined" (obvious step below the valve seats) - should these be the FL heads?
