One of the common dates released by the millions along with 83-O and 84-O during the 1962 Treasury release, 1885-O can be easily found in all grades.  Strike and luster can be an issue, so it's best to be choosy, especially given the availabilityDeep mirror prooflike specimens are not as common as for 83-O or 84-O, although normal prooflike coins aren't difficult to find.  It is common to find 85-O with embedded sawdust, as that is how planchets were dried at the mintThere is not much of major interest in terms of varieties for this dateChanging from the oval O to the round O mint mark seemingly eliminated a lot of repunched mint marksThere are a few minor repunched dates and one notable shattered obverse die ([[1885-O VAM-25A|VAM 25A]]).
One of the common dates, 1884-O has a few interesting VAMs included in the popular lists, but perhaps the most notable is the 2020 discovery VAM 56ATwo different mint mark styles were used for this year, with only a few reverse dies showing the round OSeveral varieties are known for segments of overlapping reeding, resulting from an improperly made collar dieThis date is typically found with nice luster, but can suffer from a poor strike, although fully struck specimens are availablePL and DMPL specimens are available, but they are not as common as some dates.

Mintage 9,185,000
Dies Used 124 pairs
Rarity in PL 5/10 (less common)
Die Study complete

One of the common dates released by the millions along with 83-O and 84-O during the 1962 Treasury release, 1885-O can be easily found in all grades. Strike and luster can be an issue, so it's best to be choosy, especially given the availability. Deep mirror prooflike specimens are not as common as for 83-O or 84-O, although normal prooflike coins aren't difficult to find. It is common to find 85-O with embedded sawdust, as that is how planchets were dried at the mint. There is not much of major interest in terms of varieties for this date. Changing from the oval O to the round O mint mark seemingly eliminated a lot of repunched mint marks. There are a few minor repunched dates and one notable shattered obverse die (VAM 25A).
