Do I have an Omega C67 negative carrier? Does it fit a C760?

I've seen sites online mention that an Omega C760 negative carrier can fit an Omega C67 enlarger. Is the opposite also true? Judging by listings I see on ebay and searching online, I believe I have an Omega C67 negative carrier with an Omega C760 enlarger. In an case, there's no markings or branding of any kind on my carrier. See Screenshot 3 & 4 for my carrier.

My carrier doesn't seem to sit flush into the angled sides of the negative stage's opening area (the negative carrier's corresponding grooves are not angled). See Screenshot 3 & 5. There's a lot of "play" and wiggle when I have the negative carrier inserted and it doesn't look seated completely... I'm not sure if this is normal or not?

If I insert it until I hear a louder click it seems like I went too far because a shadow leaks in from the bottom of the image, projected on the easel (the image's edge is no longer sharp). See Screenshot 2. If I insert it to the point where I hear a faint/subtle click, this shadow is not present and I guess it's more centered. See Screenshot 1. In either case, it doesn't feel "snug".

Is all of this normal or not? Nothing appears bent or damaged.

If anyone else one day has this question, I have an answer...

I had a C67 carrier, they look similar but a C67 carrier does not work in a C760 enlarger even though a C760 might be able to work in a C67. Thus the problems I’ve had.
