Description

Red PR66 1871 Two Cent Piece
No Finer PCGS-Graded Examples

1871 2C PR66 Red PCGS. CAC. A very attractive example, this coin displays honey-gold, fuchsia, and bright olive-green colors. TRUST is clearly die doubled, a diagnostic for proofs of this date. Full Red specimens are very scarce as the majority of the survivors are Red and Brown. Minuscule carbon spots near the outer edges, primarily on the obverse, do not detract from the eye appeal of this Premium Gem. James B. Longacre included a variation of this shield on his design of the Shield nickels. PCGS has yet to grade a finer example, while NGC has awarded a higher numeric grade to only one coin (11/12).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22NH, PCGS# 3647)
