Subject: [PCCLIST] Repeating consecutive 100 $c's


A question for colleagues on this list.  Is there a preferred practice for encoding a pair of consecutive $c's in a 100 field?

I've seen the following for AAPs fashioned in the style of 'Smith, John, Jr., Mrs.':


100 1- Smith, John, $c Jr., $c Mrs.

 - and -

100 1- Smith, John, $c Jr., Mrs.

The latter appears to be more common in the authority file.
