Default 454 balancer question

My balancer has 4 holes and most of the others I've seen only have 1 or 2. I'm under the assumption that this is externally balanced like any other 454, so I've bought an externally balanced flexplate for it as well. Am I just paranoid or is this balancer something different?

If it's a 454 balancer, there should be an additional weight cast in on the backside. The holes in the picture are usually for balance purposes to get the balance in the right range when their made.

yeah that's what I've gathered-- it's a '78 block.

I'll check the backside to verify the counterweight.
