Description & Analysis

As in 1855, there are two major date styles for the cents of this year, but their populations are more evenly divided. A dozen die marriages feature the Slanted 5, while eight have the Upright 5 seen on N-6 above.

1856 is another common date, though there don't appear to have been any hoards of coins having full or nearly full mint red color. The proof-only N-5 is fairly scarce, though not truly rare, while the only real rarity for this date is N-22.
