Here posing together are my lighter and darker purple W. Brookfield CREB's. The darker one (on right) has fair embossing (with slight reddish undertones) while the lighter one (on left) has got much more legible lettering. Both have the 45 Cliff Street address (on front) and the Jan. 25th 1870 patent date (on the reverse side).
