Historic Type Coin

Coins We Love

At the early US mint silver dollar planchets had to fall within a narrow weight standard. Because the weights on the silver planchets varied, various silver plugs would be needed to insert into the face of Liberty to adjust the weights to the correct levels. Noticeable on the central reverse of the eagle, this piece received such a plug and is perfect for the advanced type collector.
