Patterns in the Standard Silver series, inscribed on each coin STANDARD SILVER, were produced in the dime, quarter dollar and half dollar denominations. The dies were engraved by William Barber with one common reverse die. They were struck in silver, copper, aluminum and brass. This discovery coin was struck without Barber's initial on the ribbon. It was assigned Judd number 742b and was previously unknown to the numismatic community.
