J963/P1059 & J969/P1080 & J975/P1087

The standard silver design with a reverse similar to the one used in 1869. These were sold with the other denominations for $15.

Three obverse dies were used for this pattern, one with Liberty incused on the scroll, click on thumbnail image above, and two with Liberty raised.

These were struck in the following combinations:

Liberty Incused

Silver with reeded edge J963/P1059

Silver with plain edge J964/P1060

Copper with reeded edge J965/P1061

Copper with plain edge J966/P1062

Aluminum with reeded edge J967/P1064

Aluminum with plain edge J968/P1065

All of these are at least rarity 7, most having fewer than a half dozen confirmed.

Liberty Raised

As noted, there are 2 dies. The first has the tip of the cap under the second "S" in "States" and does not have Barber's initial "B" in the folds of the ribbon at the back of Liberty's cap.



Silver with reeded edge J969/P1080

Silver with plain edge J970/P1081

Copper with reeded edge J971/P1082

Copper with plain edge J972/P1083

Aluminum with reeded edge J973/P1085

Aluminum with plain edge J974/P1086

All of these are at least rarity 7, most having fewer than a half dozen confirmed.

The second uses the die of 1869 with the tip of the cap under the "E" in "States" with Barber's initial "B" in the folds of the ribbon in the back of Liberty's cap above the letter "L" in "Liberty".



The enlargement below shows the initial "B" above the "L" a little better.

Silver with plain edge J976/P1088

Copper with reeded edge J977/P1089

A single die trial of this reverse, struck in white metal, P3389 is also known and is broken in half.
