Hi Werner!

Since your OpenPGP card has a live cycle status indicator 05 I was
wondering why both my CryptoStick an my OpenPGP card has 00.

The reason is simple. My ATR is


hence I believed that my historical bytes were 00:31:c5:73:c0:01:40:00:90:00

But Data Object 5F52 contains a copy of the historical bytes and this
copy is 00:31:c5:73:c0:01:40:   05   :90:00

So Achim Pietig might add a short note to the documentation that
the live cycle status indicator is contained in DO 5F52 only.
