Attributed "Pitted Reverse" Die Variety
Liberty was modeled by Anna Willard a Philadelphia teacher. She agreed to sit for this with the understanding that she not be identified as the model. Shortly after the release of the coin, she was identified. The reverse of the coin depicts the Eagle. He is shown holding arrows and an olive branch as he often appears. What makes this a VAM-1E "Pitted Reverse" are the raised dots around the wreath bow, and the eagle's right leg and tail feathers. This was caused by a rusted die. The designer of the series was George T. Morgan.
