Description & Analysis

Type 2 cents form a minority of 1886 cents and thus carry a premium, but they are not truly rare. All cents of this date were coined late in the year, following a suspension in cent and nickel production that had begun early the previous year.

Like the example illustrated above, most Type 2 cents seem to have been made from worn dies having blurry details. Such die erosion is clearly visible just inside the border on both sides of this cent. This only adds to the challenge of finding suitable examples in either circulated or Mint State grades.
