I am not entirely satisfied with this identification; it could also be RPC 277.  I assigned it RPC 278 since that is the more common variety--don't think zebras when you hear hoofbeats.  However if I ever come across a matching die I will make the definitive determination at that time.  BCD doesn't record a weight for this coin.
