1886 TYPE 2 1C

Variety Diagnostics

The lowest feather of Liberty's headdress points between letters C and A of AMERICA, as on all subsequent Indian Head Cents.


Midway through 1886, the letter spacing of the obverse legend was modified, subtly altering the relationship between the central device and surrounding text. This style would persist through the end of the series in 1909.
