The Shield Two Cent is a unique denomination, a one-time design (although similar to the Shield nickel) and a beauty of a set when it's completed. Challenges in the major variety set include the circulation strike 1864 Small Motto, 1867 Doubled Die, and 1872. Proofs include the extremely rare 1864 Small Motto and the both closed and open 3 issues from 1873.
