1863 Novodel Two Cent Piece
Judd-316, PR64 Red and Brown

1863 2C Two Cents, Judd-316, Pollock-381, High R.6, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. The obverse has the expected IN GOD WE TRUST motto, but the motto is large. Otherwise it appears as a regular proof striking of the two cent piece. Struck in copper/bronze with a plain edge. This curious issue is explained by Saul Teichman and Andy Lustig on the USPatterns.com website: "From its appearance you would think that it is a transitional pattern similar to the 1882 Liberty Nickel J1690-J1692/P1892-P1894 but this has the reverse with the missing serif on the 'D' in 'United' and is struck from a large motto obverse hub. This is actually a novodel (backdated fantasy) produced circa 1869 through the early 1870s. It does not appear in any pre-1870 auction catalog to my knowledge." More than a dozen examples are believed known of these copper/bronze strikings. The evenly mellowed surfaces show significant underlying mint red, especially on the obverse. Nicely mirrored and problem-free.
