Is there any way to distinguish the two types of 1864 2 Cent coins other than looking at the motto? The one I have is worn down to where I cannot even read the motto.

    Coinfacts has a comparison image that shows the difference even when you cannot read the motto

    You can tell that by the distance the motto ribbon is from the reeding on the left side, correct?
