TWO Fizzy CREB beehives SN#4 and SN-A both with BIG BUBBLES photo #2

NOTE: You are looking straight at both bubbles in the crowns.

LEFT: "W. BROOKFIELD" (arc) / "45 Cliff ST." / "N.Y." (R crown) "4"/ "PAT" / "JAN 25TH 187?" This is embossing [100] in the 2015 price guide. There is a 1 and inch bubble from the left mold line to the "R" in BROOKFIELD.

There are 4 pings on the insulator. One resulted in a small chip to the wire groove. I believe this is the "4b" embossing in the Brewer book. It is the small embossing which I have not seen before. $45 plus shipping.

RIGHT "W. BROOKFIELD" (arc) / "NEW YORK" (R crown) "A" / PAT "NOV. 13TH 1883" / " " FEB. 12TH 1884". This is embossing [150] in the 2015 price guide. There is a 2 and inch streatched bubble behind the 1884 date. There are two fingernail size base chips to the insulator and a light abbrasion to some of the embossing on the dated side. This is the "A2 embossing in the Brewer book. Brewer calles this "medium embossing", I guess I have never seen the BIG embossing, because this looks pretty big to me. $60 plus shipping.
