Morgan's First Design for the U.S. Mint

Liberty is depicted wearing a crown inscribed with her name and a famous "liberty cap." The reverse features the problematic Bald Eagle, who, in 1878 at the U.S. Mint, did not know how many tail feathers he was supposed to have. He is pictured within a laurel wreath holding arrows, an olive branch and the correct number of tail feathers (seven) on this coin.
