1cy cachinnans with bold double anchor on scaps and patterned MC

structurally and on pattern of GC and TT this is a cachinnans.
but look at the bold double anchor in replaced scaps. and what about those patterned inner 4-5 median coverts. they should be juvenile? this is highly unlikely in juvenile cachinans coverts, so maybe they are 2nd generation ones?
