Sweet Cap is a little busy for my taste. Piedmont is nice, but I like how CB, Cycle, Drum and a couple others feel more balanced to me.

Sorry to those who would go with Uzit or an unframed back, as I had limited options for the poll.

Barry and David, I agree with you. We form a trifecta.

Especially, the AB 460 back since we know it was printed in the last press runs of T206's in early 1911.

I like Carolina Brights the best. Love the border, the font used on "Carolina Brights" and the banner and wreath in the middle.

Those are my two favorites, I voted for Sovereign, but EPDG was a close second.

After clicking on the link and seeing them all side by side I concur. I actually prefer the red cross back but dont believe they're considered part of the set.
