The obverse features a bust of Liberty facing right with a wreath of oak and vine leaves adorning her head. The word LIBERTY is inscribed on a ribbon that overlays Liberty's shoulder. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is around the periphery, the date 1859 is below. The reverse displays a spread eagle design with a broken ribbon. Struck in silver with a reeded edge from a notably lapped reverse die. The centers are not fully struck, but otherwise an attractive piece with deep steel-gray and blue colors. Assumedly, Pollock-301, which has a perfect ribbon and a rust-free reverse die, is the 'original' variety of Judd-245, while Pollock-303, which is struck from a lapped and rusted reverse die, is a mint-made restrike.
