Morgan's second obverse design of this type with pellets between the words in "E Pluribus Unum" combined with his reverse with "In God We Trust" above the eagle's head. It is unclear if this is a second obverse die or the original die used on J1568-J1569/P1758-P1760 with the pellets added later.

These were struck on thinner and slightly wider 25.5mm vs 21.5mm planchets than the regular issue.

About a half dozen are known in copper including the illustrated example previously part of the Harry W. Bass Jr. Research Foundation sale. Several have been gilted.

This design is known in gold J1570/P1764 from a single example ex Newcomer, Colonel Green, Farouk.

This obverse die was also used on J1572-J1573/P1761-P1762 and J1573A/P1763 and the reverse was also used on J1569/P1760.

A copper obverse die trial JA1878-4/P3461 is also known.
