Yes, and if you take the two left-over plates and combine them, you get a Country-tuned G harp (in this case with raised draw 9, which you can lower 1/2 step if you want a typical country tuning--but you may like that draw 5-draw 9 octave).

Both of these tunings are, like, incredibly useful. And it's nice not to have to throw the extra reed plates away, or stuff them in a drawer, or something.
