Upon close observation; between the ring and stock a very small ring joins the top of the stock, not seen on any other of this variation. Also the obverse is very defined and cleaner (no crude or slag) in manufacture, again, unlike any other of the series. This emblem is clearly different from any shown in Orgel's reference. And based on the design of the continents, this series does not definitively match any cap emblems of the period.
BTW: THIS EAGLE IS SEEKING A MATE
