Default T218 Spelling errors - how rare and what backs?

Technically not boxing again, but it is a boxing set!

The first series has 3 cards with spelling errors in the athlete name (Trybenbach, Cloughen and Gilles). I thought all only came with a Mecca 649 back after years of looking at them, but recently bought a factory 30 of the Trudenbach error. Does anyone else have a factory 30 example of any of the 3 error variants?

I've seen the Trudenbach and Gillis versions with Mecca back from both factories. I don't think that I was even aware that there is a Cloughen variation, but I would assume that it comes from both factories also.

Thanks for confirming Gillis Fact. 30 for me Dave! Another one for the master set

I've never seen the Cloughan variation in a checklist before or mentioned by anyone. I have only ever seen 1 copy, which I own, with a factory 649 Mecca back. It follows the example of Gillis, with his name spelled "Cloughen" still on the front, but "Cloughan" throughout the back text. Image attached, the error is in bottom middle (I can provide a better pic elsewhere, the file size limits won't let me post a good one).
