Helpful Tips for Identifying the W-8205, Freidus 1.2-B.a Variety: The obverse of the W-8205 is shared with W-8200. The reverse of the coin holds the main diagnostic that our experts look for. The lower right hammer is lined up directly over the 3 in 1737.

The example to the left is from Stack’s Bowers Galleries August 2022 Sale of The Sydney F. Martin Collection, Part I, where it sold for $60,000. Images courtesy of PCGS TrueView.
