This oscillator seems to have been more a frequency standard then a noise  
standard. Today's 10 MHz oscillators are different/better, such a crystal is 
no  longer available/made.
I have more experience with 100 MHz, 125 and 128 MHz. Once I am back in the 
 USA  I will send some measured results and comments. 
Thank for this reference :

How much of a difference does that selection step make?

I'd  expect the parts within a batch to be very similar, more so for mature 

These are my opinions.  I hate  spam.
