Description:
1863 Two Cent Pattern, PR66 Brown
Popular Judd-312 Design
1863 2C Two Cents, Judd-312, Pollock-377, R.4, PR66 Brown NGC. CAC.
Design.
94%Cu 3%Sn 2%Zn (5.9 g). GOD OUR TRUST appears on the scroll over the wide shield and on the reverse the word CENTS is in a sharply arcing curve, but otherwise the design is principally that of the adopted 1864 Small Motto issue. Struck in bronze (composition above and listed on the holder) with a plain edge.

Commentary. A note in George Eckfeldt's journal indicates these patterns were struck late in 1863:

"Nov. 1863 Struck 2 cent piece - 2 varieties, one with 'God and our Country' Washington head. The other is God our trust with two spears and shield and palm wreath, with the same reverse as the Washington head with the wheat sheaf wreath."


This design was also struck in copper-nickel and aluminum. Judd-312 was struck on planchets of different weights and compositions (see specifications for this coin above).

Physical Description. The original orange-red hues of this delightful Premium Gem are mixed with crimson and light brown patina in an attractive assortment of colors. The brightly reflective fields shine through the toning and close inspection reveals no mentionable distractions. The design elements exhibit razor-sharp definition throughout. This coin possesses exceptional eye appeal. Census: 13 in 66 Brown, 1 finer (3/13).
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 60467)
