Correct crystal for 1972 1680

My 1680 sub has a high service crystal
Is the proper low profile crystal a 25-127?
Sorry for not using the correct terms

Correct crystal is 127 which is a high crystal. The original is the top hat, sides are straight. The service crystal has a noticeable bevel starting about halfway up.
