The Longacre design without stars combined with a "No Motto" reverse used from 1840-1865. This muling is a fantasy piece deliberately made for sale to collectors as this reverse die wasn't supposed to exist. This reverse die is a different one from the one used on the trade dollar patterns of 1875 J1420-J1422/P1563-P1565 and 1876 J1470-J1471/P1621-P1622. It is unknown if this was actually struck in 1871 or later.

Examples are known as follows:

Copper with reeded edge J1132/P1268 with only 2 known. These are the Mitchelson piece now in the Connecticut State Library and the illustrated example, ex Judd, Harry W. Bass Jr. Research Foundation, Southern collection, Simpson collection.

Copper with plain edge J1132A/P1269 which is unique and is ex Mehl 6/07 lot 534, Zabriskie (H Chapman 6/09) , Farouk, Harry W. Bass Jr. Research Foundation, Southern collection, Simpson collection. It has been harshly cleaned and lacquered.
