1794 S$1 BB-1,B-1 MINT SILVER PLUG


Variety Diagnostics

A more-or-less round plug of silver was inserted into the planchet prior to striking, presumably to adjust its weight to fall within tolerance. This is usually visible as a full circular or semi-circular line on one of both sides.

Comments

Presently, there is just a single specimen known of the 1794 dollar having a Mint-made silver plug.
