Undated (1857) hub trial or uniface splasher with a spread-wing eagle with arrows below, surrounded by rays. No border, denomination, or legend. Partial paper backing on the reverse. Struck in white metal. Believed to be unique. A few die polishing lines are seen through the rays. The surfaces otherwise are brighter in the center with slight darkening at the margin.
