The regular Liberty Seated design, which had been in use since 1839 was changed in 1866 by the addition of "IN GOD WE TRUST" to the reverse. The motto appears on a scroll right above the eagle. A similar change was made in the quarter and dollar denominations.
Production was continuous at the Philadelphia mint from 1866 onward, though quantities struck after 1878 were reduced sharply due to the production of Morgan Dollars. Business strikes were also made at Philadelphia, New Orleans and San Francisco, with several of the Carson City issues, particularly those made in the early 1870s, being rare today.
