Determination needed for Comparing Palmer.-1 (L) and Palmer-9741 (R)

Palmer.-1's profile (note the period) is four years older than Palmer-9741, and should be the one merged into, but the name needs to be changed to Palmer and that will give it a current number. Thusly it should be merged before the change. But even then (once it is changed) it will have a higher number than P-9741.

It's beyond my pay grade!

Palmer.-1 should be merged into Palmer-9741.  There is no need to have it changed first and then merged, resulting in two redirects.

Merge is done.

So now the  older profile was merged into the newer. I guess it's OK, but it seems wrong, somehow.
Palmer.-1 had a typo error and was not a real name.  This is why the merge was done this way.
I thought that was the problem, didn't know a way out.

Thanks.
