Br 705. Group of 7 - LC-33C. Mostly F-VF. Six are unquestionably the (common) Hart Variety with a blade of grass between the two thistles to the left (currently LC-33C1, previously LC-33C2: consignor attributed by earlier Charlton catalogue). One, grading about Fine and with some corrosion, was attributed as the “non-Hart” variety, lacking the blade of grass (currently LC-33C2, previously LC-33C1), though given the poor state of preservation I am not convinced of this attribution and the piece should be examined. Lyman Low, in an unpublished manuscript now in Warren Baker’s collection, addressed the 705 Hart Variety as follows: “I doubt if there is anything in it, probably flattery to H[art]. Dr. C[ourteau] gives it (26) ‘no blade between thistles.’ Doubted, the blade may be weak on some.” I am aware of no literature or specimen (including this one) which challenges Low’s thesis. 7Pcs.
