The number stamp denotes the grip size, right? For the above 4 would correspond to L4/ 4-1/2?

Probably 4 1/4, or L2
Why would you think that? And what would the typical 3 then stand for? 4 should be 4 1/2 or L4... also looks more like a 4 than a 2.
by the way, anybody needs a help to explain L1 to L5: it’s always 4 in and 1 to 5 8th:

3 = 4 3/8
4 = 4 4/8 = 4 1/2
2 = 4 2/8 = 4 1/4
...And so on.

well, I don't see any numbers besides the two 4's, so 1/4 makes sense to me, that's all

Measure it and compare here:

The thread I linked gives dimensions of handles without grips, so you can just measure what you have pictured. No need to try to account for a grip that isn't there.

So you agree its a 4-1/2?
@golden if it was my personal i would but the grip sz sticker was missing and the seller doesn't seem too savvy. W/o the leather would you add an extra 1/8 to ballpark the true size?
Yes. The numbering system (0 through 6) originated with European-based manufacturers, who weren’t excited about using the inch (or fractions thereof). The number corresponds to number of eighths of inch over 4 inches, hence:
No. 0 = 4”
No. 1 = 4-1/8”
No. 2 = 4-2/8” ... or 4-1/4”
No. 3 = 4-3/8”
No. 4 = 4-4/8” ... most commonly 4-1/2”
No. 5 = 4-5/8”
No. 6 = 4-6/8” ... 4-3/4”

Thanks... I am more than familiar with the # system but that is not what I was asking...My question was wether or not the number stamped on this K90 pallet actually indicates the grip size or if it’s just a random production stamp.
