For Jachin I had to be a little more creative. From the Federal Reserve stamp the number 12 and 30 are readable, but a number is missing. Knowing that the other stamp was misaligned by 27° and that 33° is crucial to the Mer design I realised that mapped onto a 60 segment circle, those numbers could be represented by one mapped clockwise and the other counter.
So as to continue clockwise movement I selected 33 as the missing number, and found that only 3 steps were needed before repetition was required.
And a further 8 repetitions, for again 10 iterations. Here the inner points number 20 but land on the same 10 positions, added to the external 10 this shape is a 30 pointed star again matching its counterpart on the dollar bill.
