    What's wrong with the 2 up top?

    The date is in the wrong location (shifted right).

    13th star not pointing toward lower curls for B2.

    It looks like a B1?

    You are correct actually the star location is one of the easiest ways to identify the B-1 variety which is selling for at least double the B-2

    I just checked mine and I see what you mean by the 13star pointing at the curls. You guys are great, knowing all those details!

    Looks like a B1 which, if so, would be a rarity 5. Not my field but I still love the game. Die line from Arrow is visible. Beautiful coin.

    Got it, B1! (once again too late) Fun game none the less. :)

    I have very little knowledge regarding these coins but a quick look at the example of the B-2 on Coin Facts made it abundantly clear the coin in the OP wasn't a B-2. The date is clearly shifted right versus the B-2 example in Coin Facts. The 5 is directly under the curl.
