Isobel (preliminary): z~0.546 (OII line + type Ia like SN features). Note that this is superceded by VLT redshift below.
Andy (final): The VLT spectrum is a good fit to SN 1990N at -7d. You can see Si II 4000 on the earlier Keck spectrum (-9.6d rest). The best match (from my fitting program) to the Keck spectrum is SN 1994D at -9d, though SN 1990N at -14d is not a bad match as well. SN 1990N doesn't show Si 4000 yet, but Beethoven does. Note that there are some small differences in the (rest frame) UV, where the spectrum is dominated by iron-peak elements.

Chris: VLT OII is probably best redshift: z=0.543. See email.
