This muling of the 1866 Washington obverse with "In God We Trust" combined with the 1867 Liberty head obverse without star on coronet, if it actually exists, is believed to have been struck outside the mint from dies sold as scrap metal which were purchased by Joseph Mickley. Many of these coins ended up in the Crosby collection. It is not known if Mickley or Crosby was the actual minter of these coins.

Examples are listed in nickel J580/P635 and white metal J581/P636.

These were made from planchets which are not mint standard so attributions as to the true composition of these is questionable. Metallurgical analysis of these is recommended.
