According to different answers on this site the format of the standard TX claim script should be [OP_PUSH DER(R+S)+HashType OP_PUSH PubKey]

The OP_PUSH code is 4C, 4D or 4E depending on push length.

However in this transaction I cannot see the expected code. I could not even find the definition of the one there: https://blockchain.info/rawtx/db320e85d8bef3895052d9bf002aeb185fa12eeef8445e3e45f31b9a0c90f9f6?format=hex

01 00 00 00 is txin index, 8C is the scriptin length and then comes 49. Instead of 49 I would expect 4C.

Is it because you can leave out the OP_CODEs or what am I missing?

  • [push signature] 49... and [push pubkey] 41... are the codes. Note: all codes from 0x01 to 0x4b are also pushes
