Let’s weigh our mint state 1794 Dollars!
It seems too coincidental that the earliest known piece is the only one that was plugged, presumably to bring it up to the proper weight. It would be interesting to know if some or all of the other MS examples are slightly underweight, and if the Mint just couldn’t be bothered bringing them up to weight.
