Ruiz,

It's a cast fake. Just the ring is a dead give away.

Nexorcist,

This one looks good to me; I believe that it is a 1950-60's issue.

To me this looks like a variation 2 with a slightly rounded ring, but I wouldn't mind seeing some better scans.

Nexorcist,

That one looks OK to me too; it is an earlier variant I believe.
Did you stumble upon a cache of these? :confused:

If possible, I would like to see some more detailed scans. I don't like the H&S on this one.
