Description

1873 Closed 3 Two Cent, Gem Red and Brown
Original Proof Issue, Reverse of 1872

1873 2C Closed 3 PR65 Red and Brown PCGS Secure. CAC. One of the original proof issues, as the Open 3 coins are backdated pieces issued later in the year. Lilac predominates, but generous amounts of mint red outline all the devices on both sides. A single scrape under the 2 in the center reverse is the only visible contact. The proof Closed 3s were produced to the extent of only 600 pieces. The die line running horizontally into the reverse field, from the leaf left of the large 2, is diagnostic for this reverse -- the same seen on some 1872 proof two cents. Population: 87 in 65 (1 in 65+) Red and Brown, 18 finer (1/13).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 2753, PCGS# 3652)
