Ed K had said it has a shortened NC 5 on it. The 0 and 4A together don’t sound very good.

With all due respect to Ed, I was never the biggest fan of any horn or whistle that played more than five or six notes, that being said I still believe the H6 to be Robert Swanson's true masterpiece.

The early low profile P5 manifolds were three piece castings, that used these extensions to make a low profile P3 manifold into a P5 manifold. In the case of Ed’s P7, the extensions are replicas of the originals.
These are commonly made by talking a low profile 5 chime P manifold and cutting the sides off. This leaves the extensions and a low profile P3 manifold. See this thread for more info.
