Varieties and overdates abound; for 1910, no varieties are recorded. A earlier type, with a slightly different figure of seated Liberty, was issued 1863-64 (KM 189). The silver coin was replaced in 1918 by a copper-nickel five centavos.

Recorded mintage: 640,000.

Specification: 2.50 g, .900 fine silver, reeded edge.
