Gordon Wrubel: Quickfinder Notes: On both the Reverse of 1797 and the Reverse of 1794, the right branch of the wreath terminates in a Double Leaf. The best way to distinguish between the two is to look at the Ribbon Bow. The Reverse of 1797 has its Ribbon Loops starting AT the Ribbon Knot. The Reverse of 1794 has its Ribbon Loops starting on a short EXTENSION ABOVE the Ribbon Knot. Hence, it has been termed the "High Bow" reverse. The Graded and No Graded populations of these two reverses are almost dead even. But both of them are much scarcer than the Reverse of 1795 with its Single Terminal Leaves.
