It looks like a leather back

Early Briggs fordor. It likely is a leather back. It could be a blind back from 29 or a Standard Briggs Fordor but the photo isn't too clear.

Looking at the swag lines going forward off the door it looks like a 30-31 cowl.

The 28-29 Fordors, and the 29 Carbiolets have a cowl similar to the 30-31's. Not like the 28-29 tudors, coupes, roadsters, and phaetons.

I'm going to go with 1928-29 fordor Leatherback - 60A or 60B. Kind of fuzzy but tail light looks more like '28 - dark top as in '29(?).

Here's a picture of a Briggs leatherback from an ad of a few years ago. The light color surrounds in the b&w photo might be the same.

Hard to tell as the picture is very blurry but since the angle of both pictures looks about the same the tail light looks to be a tea cup (29) not a drum (28). Therefore I would say it's a 29.
