Description & Analysis

Despite an ongoing economic depression, cent production returned to normal levels in 1895. This date is readily available in all grades short of fully red gem, and even these top-end pieces exist in sufficient numbers for the advanced collector.

The cents of 1895 are rich in die-punching varieties, though only a few are distinct enough to have broad appeal.
