    According to the Red Book there were 2 "blunt rays" varieties, one in 1783 where the reverse has a small "U-S" printed in the center, and one in 1875 where the "US" is scripted with flourish. Both retail in the book for $100 in VG, but yours is very corroded so you'd be lucky to get close to that, if you chose to sell it.
