For the first time on a U.S. coin, the main elements of the design were incuse, or sunk into the coin,and there was no raised rim. This unusual design was somewhat controversial, and relatively short lived. Struck from 1908 to 1915, and again from 1925 to 1929, just over 7 million pieces were issued.
