Description

1864 Two Cent, Small Motto, MS66 Red
Conditionally Rare First-Year Key

1864 2C Small Motto MS66 Red NGC. FS-401. The Small Motto variant of the 1864 two cent piece forms a distinct minority of the coins struck in that debut year for both proofs and business strikes. As a Red circulation-strike example in better-than-Gem preservation, this piece is a high-grade condition rarity that could slot into any of the best collections of its odd denomination. Obverse and reverse surfaces range from light to deep peach, never sliding toward mahogany or any other "Brown" shade. The strike is crisp, carbon is minimal, and any attempt at criticism dissolves into pettiness.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22N8, PCGS# 3581)
