This is the only one graded by NGC. This Gold-Plated variety was previously unknown until it was cataloged in the new book on So-Called Dollars Volume I: United States Expositions. The obverse, likely engraved by George H. Lovett, features a copy of John Trumbull’s painting of the 1776 Congress Committee of Five making its report on the Declaration of Independence. This variety has three people seated and one person standing to the right of the Committee of Five, the die is not signed. The reverse commemoration legend has a microscopic “Pat. Nov. 3 1874 H&L” below.
