Owner Comments:

Br2-B, but not conclusive. Not all attributes mentioned in Briggs are present, but enough are--the slope and position of the arrows by the date, the re-cutting of the eagle's left claw, to differentiate it from the others. What gives me pause is Briggs' book makes no mention of the most obvious feature--heavy doubling of the reverse legend. Particularly noticeable in TATES O and UAR. The coin is tied with two others at the top of the condition chart and fulfills all the requirements, strike, color, and luster expected in that grade. Bought from Bill Nagle December 2003.
