Description & Analysis

Demand for additional cents fell during 1866, and the mintage for this date is much lower than in 1862-65. The hoarding of cents prevalent during the war years was over, and this issue circulated widely and for a very long time. Most survivors are heavily worn, with choice Mint State pieces being fairly scarce.

1866 cents are notable for numerous die-punching varieties, and these are quite popular with specialists. The coin illustrated, while not a variety, is noteworthy for the worn, cracked and clashed state of its obverse die.
