Well, that is the second of the three obvious (there are other minor machining variations) narrow blocks, all of which were used before the width change at 96300, in 1878.
(1) High arch, eagle head and crossed arrows, US (several comb versions)
(2) High arch, with US Model 1873
(3) Low arch, with US Model 1873
Of the narrow blocks (1) is the most common, while the other two are scarce, perhaps almost rare, today. Neither of the last two present any noticeable variations within the type.
