Jaime Hernandez:

In 1863 the U.S. Mint was experimenting with producing Pattern 2 Cent pieces. Some of the first 2 Cent Pattern coins were struck in 1863 and 1864 with a small motto. But early in the production process the Mint changed the motto of the 1864 Proof 2 Cents, to a larger motto.Therefore, the Mint struck two different varieties, one with the words "In God We Trust" with small letters and the second with the larger letters. The1864 Proof 2 Cents are very rare in any condition and it is estimated that only about 20-30 examples are known.
