Dear Norwid,

thank you very much for the report!

Indeed, the two structures you mention seem to be the same. The COD
policy in that case would to mark one entry as a duplicate of the other
one (of the more complete one). We'll check the original paper and mark
the entries accordingly.

Unfortunately, duplicates occasionally end up in the COD; when detected,
they are marked in the 'duplicateof' column in the COD SQL table `data`,
and using the '_cod_duplicate_entry' CIF data name in the duplicate
entry CIF.  When doing statistics on the COD, these need to be excluded
(our search we page also does this). We do not delete these entries so
that the COD IDs, once assigned, always point to the record of the same
crystal investigation.

Sincerely yours,
