Ron Guth: The 1867 Two Cent piece is a relatively common coin that offers the type collector an affordable coin with a mintage that is considerably lower than the most common dates of this type. Keep an eye open for the desirable 1867 Doubled Die Obverse (the doubling is clearly visible in the letters of the motto IN GOD WE TRUST" and on the shaft of the left arrowhead.
