Someone, probably Austin Cooper himself, has indicated in pencil a position higher up on the neck of the figure for the pendant shown on the breast in the engraving. The engraving was published in 1788 but the book in which it appears states that Austin Cooper made the drawing in 1781. The original drawing on which this engraving was based may be found at 2122 TX (1) 25.
