My understanding of the the Atlantic Modal Haplotype (AMH) is, it is composed of six markers. The deviation from the modal for the Brythonic Celts is on marker DYS 391. Following is the AMH modal, with the Brythonic Celt markers in parenthesis and the asterisk indicating the deviation from the modal:

DYS 393 = 13 (13)
DYS 390 = 24 (24)
DYS 19/394 = 14 (14)
DYS 391 = 11 (10) *
DYS 388 = 12 (12)
DYS 392 = 13 (13)

Information I obtained from an article on the Family Tree DNA website indicates that: Circa 2,500-3,000 ybp (years before present) Brythonic Celtic DNA mutated on DYS 391 to 10 from 11.

You and I don't match on all twelve markers you listed but, we do match on the markers relevant to Brythonic Celts. So, in a manner of speaking, we have different phone numbers but the same area code.
