Born of a Civil War coin shortage, two-cent pieces were destined to become a collector favorite! Now, you can own both varieties from 1864 (the series’ first year) – the key-date Small Motto, and the first Large Motto coins. The original issues boasted smaller, block-like lettering in the motto IN GOD WE TRUST, and are much scarcer than their replacement, which featured taller, thinner letters. These are the best-known varieties of the short-lived 1864-1873 series.
Issued the same year as Sherman’s “March to the Sea,” these 1864 2¢ pieces are important additions to any classic coin collection. Your 2-coin set comes presented in a handsome cherry wood display case. Order today to own both exciting first-year varieties!
