Description:
Innovative 1836 Two Cent Pattern in Billon
Judd-52, PR65
1836 P2C Two Cents, Judd-52, Pollock-55, Low R.6, PR65 NGC.
Design.
Obverse: A small eagle with outstretched wings standing on a cloud, with the peripheral legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and 1836 below. Reverse: The denomination TWO CENTS surrounded by a laurel wreath. Struck in billon (90% copper, 10% silver) with a plain edge.

Commentary.

Stack's private treaty transaction (10/1991).
