Description

1866 Two Cent Piece, MS66 Red
Unmellowed Surfaces

1866 2C MS66 Red PCGS. The first two years of the two cent piece saw hefty mintages (nearly 20 million in 1864 and more than 13 million in 1865), largely resulting from the Civil War coin shortage. After the war, fewer banks called for this denomination and mintages began to dwindle. Slightly more than 3 million pieces were coined in 1866.
The present lustrous peach-gold Premium Gem exhibits sharply struck design motifs and is devoid of mentionable marks. The determined observer aided by a strong loupe will finally detect the infrequent tiny carbon fleck. An exemplary coin overall. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 7 in 66 Red, 0 finer (11/10).
From The John H. Twist Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 274R, PCGS# 3590)
