Ron Guth: This variety shows the spelling of all relevant words with V instead of U.  Thus, GEORGIUS becomes GEORGIVS, UTILE becomes VTILE, and DULCI becomes DVLCI.  Apparently, only one example is known in Proof, that being the former Garrett - Ford example illustrated above.  Some researchers consider this a pattern coin; others consider it an off-metal strike in copper.  The circulation strike version of this coin is listed as PCGS #108.
