    • Contains .17875 oz of Silver.
    • Designed by Hermon MacNeil.
    • Obverse: Depicts a militaristic Liberty wearing chainmail walking through a gate while holding an olive branch and a shield.
    • Reverse: Depicts an eagle in flight.

    • John Ledogar is the "b7" counter stamp anything significant in your option?  Are counterstamps just someone's personal touch?

  • I agree with John. One of my favorites, too!

    Miss Liberty is standing. There was a scandal when the coin first appeared. The original 1916 coins showed Miss Liberty bare breasted. The mint covered her up soon thereafter.

    Containing about 0.18 troy ounces of silver, with silver currently trading at about $20 per troy ounce, your coin is worth about 0.18 x 20 = $3.60.

  • Personal counterstamps happen all the time. Some collectors seek them out. Most consider them post-mint damage. I don't think it affects your coin one way or the other. See this page for more info:
