looks like someone went bird hunting and shot at it.... :ninja:

dont they know double headed eagles are an endagered species?

 

coin could be ok. I think I see some trace of elizabeth 5k, (banner w/denomination) to the right of the eagle.

I see what you mean about the lettering, the high points seem crushed in a few spots.

Actually, now that I have taken a second look at Brekke's illustrations, the lettering is not at all untypical. Looks like it is Brekke 17; the deformation of the high points could have resulted from putting that hole in from the other side (ouch!).
