The reverse features an eagle with outstretched wings, a scroll inscribed E PLURIBUS UNUM in its beak, and the usual statutory legends above and below. The "Broken Ribbon" Pollock subvariety. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Commentary. There are several differences in the reverse die that distinguish two varieties of Judd-235. Pollock-284 has a broken ribbon, three lines in each vertical shield stripe, and six tail feathers. The other variety is Pollock-282, with a perfect ribbon, four lines, and seven tail feathers.
