To my knowledge, Liberty is always in raised letters in spite of what the Judd and Pollock book show. For more on this, click here.
Examples were struck in the following combinations with the earlier Pollock series supposedly struck from an obverse die with Liberty incused on the scroll and the latter series from a die with Liberty raised on the scroll. Please note that some of these numbers are not in Pollock but were left open based on the assumption that this obverse die does exists with Liberty in both formats. Again, we believe that only the raised Liberty die exists.
