Winnie's oil was overfilled by the dealership. I couldn't get a good reading on it. When the new dipstick arrived, I tried again. Someone suggested siphoning some oil through the dipstick channel until it was correct, which we did this morning. It was a half quart too much. Now I get a perfect reading. Although it is hard to see in the photo, the Cravenspeed dipstick shows two marks at the top without oil on them, so it is now between half and full. (full would be to the thicker part) The OEM dipstick shows a good reading too, though in person it is harder to see. It shows exactly the same level. YAY!!
