Miss Liberty With An Earring?

Posted on September 18, 2012 by

How many U.S. coins show Miss Liberty with an earring?

The coin pictured above is a rare pattern coin from 1882, with a design that was used on the Quarter Dollar, Half Dollar, and One Dollar pattern coins. The distinctive feature of this coin is the piece of jewelry dangling from Liberty’s ear. Apparently, this was one of the few times (and it may be the only time, upon further reflection) that Liberty was ever depicted with an earring!

Can you think of any other?

    The reason she didn’t have it after 1882 was that she lost it, I found it metal detecting in Lane Kansas and I still have it. I am excited because I finally found the ear it belongs in. How can I place a photo for you to see of it. I am serious believe it or not.
