Work on the ring cents continued with J127/P149

These were later restruck in the late 1850s to early 1860s.

A muling of this obverse with the reverse of 1850 is also known J124F/P144

as are uniface examples of just the reverse J131B/P157.

Proof restrikes of the silver dollar were made in silver circa 1859 with additional pieces made throughout the 1860s into the 1870s. The copper examples J132/P159 are believed to have been made starting circa 1863.

One of the neater items still in existance is a cardboard die trial for the regular circulation 3 cent silver design from the Library Company of Philadelphia JA1851-1/P3115.
