  1. Ohhh, intriguing. It looks so explicit that it seems easy to identify, yet my first attempt failed.

    It's getting late here so let's wait a while what others think when they see this. If that also fails, next best step would be to post it in particular FB groups, where there are more experts, with your permission.
