Large Motto

1864 2C Large Motto PR65 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. Identified on Eric Newman's envelope as Adams-Woodin 452 (Judd-370), the regular dies two cent piece, but struck in pure copper. However, NGC conducted elemental analysis that shows this piece is the normal bronze composition and, therefore, is a regular issue 1864 Large Motto two cent piece.
