(Must be getting old; I keep talking to myself here... )Appreciate the detailed answer, especially the distinction between styles; I never saw them side by side, and didn't know enough about shoes to have recognized that distinction until now. I always thought the Dover was a PTB because of the open lacing, but now I see that they're quite different in construction from the 990, and understand the difference between Derbys and Bluchers (I just read a lengthy discussion about those differences on Gentlemen's Gazette). Thanks!
Now I don't feel so bad about having thought of my Dovers as PTBs; I just noticed that Brick+Mortar describes them as a "Color 8 Shell Cordovan Unlined Plain Toe Dover Blucher":
