HT 318A       Low 279A       XF 40       R-5   

Squire & Merritt, Ship Chandlers. New York City. (1836). Copper. Small 175 incused. Think planchet. Plain edge.

This particular example has a very thin planchet, unlike the very thick planchet described by Rulau. Quite possibly this should be listed as its own separate variety if planchet thickness is used to distinguish varieties.
