Description & Analysis

The demand for new cents increased in 1874, and this date is not so scarce as the several preceding it. Perhaps this additional demand is what prompted the Treasury to begin reissuing the cents it redeemed under the 1871 law instead of routinely melting and recoining them as in past years.

1874 cents are quite scarce with full red color, but MS RB coins are not too difficult to locate. This date is not noted for interesting die varieties.
