The states of 104Pd, populated in the EC- $\beta ^+$ decay of the ground ( $J^\pi = 5^+$) and metastable ( $J^\pi = 2^+$) states of 104Ag, have been investigated in the framework of the proton-neutron interacting boson model, extending a previous analysis to take into account the newly appeared experimental data. All positive-parity states up to an excitation energy of 3 MeV and spin in the range $J = 1\mbox{--}6$, fed by more than 0.3% in the decay of the parent nucleus, have been considered. As a result, strong evidence has been found for interpreting most of these states as states of collective nature having a quite pure full- or mixed-symmetry character and, in particular, for identifying the 1 + level at 2276 keV as the lowest 1 + mixed-symmetry state.
