The motto IN GOD WE TRUST appears in small letters at the upper border with the date below and stars to the left and right. An eagle on the reverse has wings displayed, holding an olive branch and three arrows. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and motto E PLURIBUS UNUM ate placed at the upper border with the denomination QUAR. DOLLAR below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The Washlady name has been in use nearly since the time of issue, although this design has been called the Society Lady design in recent times.
