The Longacre design with stars combined with the regular reverse. The obverse on this die shows 13 stars on the flag and is often called the obverse of 1871 although this one does not have Longacre's name in the right corner. This was apparently implemented by William Barber as Longacre died in 1869.

This design is much rarer with this obverse than with the 22 star obverse.

This design is known in the following combinations.
