Splendid Gem Brown 1863 Two Cent
Judd-305, The Earliest Washington Pattern

1863 2C Two Cents, Judd-305, Pollock-370, R.4, PR65 Brown PCGS. CAC. The obverse features a bust right of Washington, encircled by GOD AND OUR COUNTRY and the date below. The reverse displays a wheat wreath surrounded by UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The denomination is at the center, with CENTS prominently curved. Struck in copper with a plain edge. The Judd reference notes that this is the "earliest dated Mint pattern featuring Washington's portrait," and as such it should appeal not only to pattern collectors but Washingtonia collectors. This splendid Gem features much mint red remaining on the obverse, with tinges of brown, purple, and jade, while the reverse is a more consistent deep purple. Both sides are free of distractions. A nice example of this pattern issue. (NGC ID# 29EK, PCGS# 60460)
