Default Futaba Rx - high or low??

I have a Futaba Rx with no xtal in it & no "high" or "low" oval sticker on it. It does have a sticker next to the x-tal opening that says "72.250MHZ". Looking into the x-tal opening I see a red pen mark that I heard meant high from the factory. However, the 75.250 sticker makes me think it is low. Any thoughts??

I have no problem sending it to Futaba with my new ch 32 Rx x-tal to be tuned if there is no way to tell for sure.

Unless you know for sure that it is high/low band I'd send it to Futaba. If you purchased the receiver from someone else they may have used a high band receiver and installed a low band crystal in it(that would explain the low band sticker).

Better safe than crashed due to reduced range. Off to Futaba it goes. Thanks guys.
