This is a die trial piece, in white metal, showing just the lettering and denomination by Anthony C. Paquet struck on a rectangular block. It shows the same lettering alignment as that used on J222/P265.

It is believed unique and was part of the materials purchased by the Library Company of Philadelphia from Maxwell Whiteman. It is listed as inventory #17.
