Jill,

You are the second person to report this type of Canyon saucer to me.  I
personally have not seen it.  It is my opinion that this is likely just
a differnt period/mold.  Molds did wear out and were sometimes replaced
with modified versions.

McCoy period catalogs list 28 Canyon items, however I can account for at
least 41 items/shapes.  There are many variations.

Regards,

Jed
