A quote from U.S. Silver Dollar Encyclopedia, Highfill Press, Inc.:The Draped Bust dollar obverse was designed by noted artist Gilbert Stuart in an attempt to elevate U.S. coinage designs to "world class" stature. This design marked a maturing of the "young" Liberty of the preceding Flowing Hair design to a more "matronly" concept of the emblematic national symbol. In 1798, the young hatchling eagle seen on the reverse of the earlier dollar was replaced with an older and more naturalistic eagle, and one that was more in keeping with heraldic iconography. One oversight in the iconography of the Heraldic Eagle reverse though, was in the placement of the arrows in the eagle's right claw the more honorable placement in heraldry leaving the olive branch in the left or less honorable claw. This more warlike placement of the arrows was repeated on all heraldic eagle coins of the period.
The above reference in a way vindicates my rare 1804 Silver Dollar coin..There are a few minted versions shown so far...But, the one 1804 Silver Dollar coin with A Shattered broken Arrow Stem hanging and trying to penetrate the Letter E on the Heraldic Eagle Reverse is deemed the rarest uncovered so far!!!
