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.

Most Type 2 cents seem to have been made from worn dies having blurry details. This only adds to the challenge of finding suitable examples in either circulated or Mint State grades.
