I know the feeling. Sometimes Internet discussions just aren't worth it.

First of all, though Capa was famous for stretching the truth with his
stories (thus his book "Slightly Out of Focus") he was never that way with
his work. I don't think there were two images you mention. But I'll take a
look too if I can remember where I saw the contact sheet. There's one area
where my often flawed memory serves me, it's looking at pictures. I
remember them better than I do anything else.
