Any way to determine which species of Lucanus these are?

I put the photos into "ID Request" rather than landing them in Genus Lucanus because I was hoping someone has the expertise to determine the species prior to maturity. Is it possible to look at the development of the pincers at this stage, or some other feature, to make that determination?
