Description & Analysis

Coining of the two-cent piece continued its gradual downward slide in 1867, and this date is about equal in rarity to the 1866 edition.

Die-punching varieties exist, but they are minor and appeal solely to specialists in this series. Of much greater interest to collectors is a spectacular doubled-die obverse affecting the motto IN GOD WE TRUST and the arrows. While not very rare, it is nonetheless quite desirable, particularly in Mint State.
