About
The rarer and therefore more precious cousin of the straddled Jaeger, the piked Jaeger does not enjoy the same prominence in routine composition outside of Russia, where it is the favored form of the Jaeger. Lucky, lucky Russians, the piked Jaeger has been increased in value to an E beginning in 2017 (which the straddled version remains a D), which will presumably usher in the Age of the Piked Jaeger.

Value
E (2017–)
D (–2016)
