Description & Analysis

This issue is similar in mintage and overall availability to the 1874 cent. Examples grading up to MS RB exist in sufficient numbers to supply advanced collectors. Like the specimen illustrated, many MS coin have streaky, "woodgrain" toning from uneven mixing of the alloy.

Several minor varieties are noted for this date. While of interest to the specialist, these are not mainstream varieties sought by general collectors. A dilligent numismatist may be able to spot these unattributed.
