Default New to me timing mark

Been splitting the 67 crank...

There's a double slash on the left flywheel between the 1st single slash (45 degree advance on front cylinder or TDC on rear cylinder) and the dot (TDC on front cylinder)



Would that be front cylinder fully retarted for vertical auto advance timers?

(can't remember seeing that double mark on my post 71 Sportsters...)
