This pattern shows the regular 1864 two cent obverse with the 1863 reverse with the word cents well curved. Examples of this design were struck from both the 'Small Motto' and 'Large Motto' obverse dies which probably means that they were struck at different times. The illustration below courtesy of PCGS shows the difference in the size of the motto.



Examples of this design were struck as follows:

Large Motto

Copper or Bronze J363/P437 with fewer than a half dozen known.

Copper-nickel J364/P438 has been delisted as it is actually an example of J371/P440 struck with the regular reverse die.

Aluminum J365/P439. Pollock mentions the Olsen, Farouk coin per Taxay but this may be the same as the 'Small Motto' coin below.

Small Motto

Copper or Bronze J366-J367/P433 with fewer than a half dozen known.

Copper-nickel J368/P434. This is not confirmed to exist.

Aluminum J369/P435. This is believed to be unique and is ex-Parmelee, Brenner-1914 ANS exhibit, Pine Tree 9/74, B/M 6/96 and has rim damage at 7:30.

An incomplete white metal splasher of this design, JA1864-1/P3260, is in the collection of the Library Company of Philadelphia.
