The popular "Liberty at the Seashore" design. These were struck on 420 grain trade dollar planchets so either these may have been trade dollar patterns or the Mint simply used what was available at the time.

This design was struck as follows.

Silver J1467/P1618. Five examples were struck according to all the standard reference works and that is all that can be traced today.
