The Whitman Judd book is scarce on info, and I am still currently going through auction listings. I would love to have any information regarding the designing of this pattern and Barber's reasoning, as it seems there were no plans to redesign the $5. There was also a 20c piece stuck with the same obverse design, but a different reverse. I'm hoping to be able to put together a research paper on these. Thanks!

Here are the coins, from CoinFacts:
