The very source is Boris Vorontsov-Velyaminov himself. In his VV II
catalogue of 1973 he states the identification with the MCG 5-43-13,
discovered in the early 60s during his MCG survey. Zwicky has found
it at the same time (CGCG), but did not note any peculiarity.
Best, Wolfgang
P.S. I have known your IAAC site for some time - nice piece of work!
