The American bald eagle is featured on the reverse as he holds an olive branch and a clutch of arrows. He is surrounded by a laurel wreath that symbolizes victory, success, and prosperity.

VF35 grade, VAM-27 "Long Nock" Example

There will be apparent wear or evidence of heavy circulation over the highest points of the devices. The 1878-S VAM-27 clearly shows the nock (the end where the bow string goes) or shaft of the arrow extending further than usual behind the feathers.
