Although the S-76b variety is plentiful by the measure of the Liberty Cap type, the present chocolate-brown near-Mint example is much nicer than the typically encountered dark and well circulated piece. Unabraded and satiny with minor blending of detail on the curls above the ear. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a.
