Description

Impeccable 1873 Closed 3 Two Cent
PR66 Red and Brown

1873 2C Closed 3 PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. The Closed 3 coins were the original proof strikings, as all of the Open 3 two cent pieces were later restrikes. One wonders what Mint officials of the 19th century would think if they knew the depth of numismatic research today, which distinguishes between the two types. This piece shows much more red than brown, the latter primarily occupying the device high points, and the strike and overall appeal are impeccable. Only a single PCGS-certified piece is numerically finer, a PR67 Red coin. Population: 17 in 66 Red and Brown, 0 finer (6/10).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 2753, PCGS# 3652)
