The reverse of this type bears a single-bow wreath, as distinguished from the wreath tied with a double bow on the following type. A three-leaf sprig appears above the date on the obverse, and both sides have borders of small beads.
Introduction of this reverse answered criticism of the chain design, which critics saw as symbolic of slavery rather than strength in unity, but the stronger modeling of the face and hair still failed to gain acceptance as representative of Liberty. After three months’ production the design was abandoned in favor of the Liberty Cap type.
Instead of the normal sprig above the date, the rare strawberry-leaf variety has a spray of trefoil leaves and a small blossom. The trefoils match those found on the normal wreath reverse. It is not clear why this variety was created. All four known specimens are well worn.
