    I’m hardly an expert in classic proofs, but it looks like an EDS business strike to me

    I think I see a flat rim with a squared edge but i have a hard time telling if that's the case it's in or something. Other examples I saw online had an edge like that, and some didn't but I thought maybe it had been cropped out of the picture or something? Anyway, appreciate the info

    This is a proof. Note the difference in details of the arrow feathers.
