The closed 9 is common.

That is Longacre Doubling. Extremely common, and not a doubled die.

SilverDollar has it right on both counts. Not sure what you mean by the missing "s" in 1862.

United State instead of States but I can see traces of the S
On the left of most every CCF page, I am trying to remember to use CCF Partners links. They are highlighted in lime green!
It helps CCF a little. Try it!

The missing "S" looks like it was caused by a grease filled die.

Yes, that is a grease filled die. Coin is not worth slabbing.

JimmyD is right on! Grease filled die, happens when machine grease gets into the recesses of a die, causing the metal not to flow correctly when struck, possible collectible value to someone that collects via die varieties, but the premium would be very slight, most dealers and collectors call this distracting and don't want them in collections.

I collect them in the 2 cent series, and have a bunch missing various letters or design features, the more valuable ones involve missing digits in the date.

The longacre doubling on the 1895 is interesting. I was under the impression Longacre doubling ended on the obv of the Indian head in 1886 with the introduction of the new obv hub.
