104. That's not "too uniform", it was just stitched by someone with good eyesight...
...who took pride in their work.

Back in that day, even an entry-level seamstress was expected
to be able to do that, and an experienced one would be expected
to deliver specific stitches-per-inch just by eye.

Consider that the woven-work detail visible below those stitches
was also done by hand, and the stitches don't seem so difficult
in comparison.
