Shield Two Cents Basic Set, Circulation Strikes (1864-1872)

Number of Required Items

9
Current Finest Possible Set Rating

69.143

Here's a set that's short but filled with challenges. The Basic set does not include the 1864 Small Motto, so the only challenging circulation strike will be the 1872. It's a unique denomination, a one-time design (although similar to the Shield nickel) and a beauty of a set when it's completed.

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
