The regular die trials piece of the "with cents" reverse.

Examples were struck as follows:

Copper J1719A/P1926 with only the Bolender 6/35, Auction 89 piece known. According to the Stacks Auction 89 description, "It was struck from a rusty reverse die. The I in (PLURIBUS) now centered under the upright of the E in STATES."

Aluminum J1720/P1927 with over a half dozen believed to exist on apparently very poor planchets. 3 were in Stacks 5/98 sales and 3 were also in Heritage 2/14 sale, 2 of which were from the Stacks sale. Eric Newman's represents another.

According to the Stacks Auction 89 description, this is also struck from a different hub than used on regular with cent proofs. "It has bent back tassels in relation to the tops of V and the position of the I in (PLURIBUS) to the upright of the E in STATES."
