Proposed Image for the Reverse of the New Dollar Coin

Description (Brief)
Although Gasparro made many drawings of eagles for the reverse of the new dollar coin, the mint ultimately chose to use a reverse that was very similar to that on the 1971—1974 Dwight D. Eisenhower dollar (an adaptation of the Apollo II insignia,) for the Susan B. Anthony dollar.
