In 1794, Chief Engraver Robert Scot modified the earlier French inspired design by enlarging the bust of Liberty and having her face right rather than left, also, Scot increased the size of the Phrygian cap on Liberty's pole. On the reverse, the wreath was similar, but without the sprays of berries. While the series has only two major design types (facing left and facing right) it includes numerous varieties. One of the better known varieties is the "punctuated" date of 1795. It is actually an accident by the engraver resulting with a date thatlooks like "1,795".
