Description

1872 Two Cent, MS64+ Red and Brown
Key Circulation Strike

1872 2C MS64+ Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. While the 1864 Small Motto and 1873 issues are generally thought of as the keys to the two cent series, among circulation strikes it is the 1872 that is the prime collecting key. The 1872 does not have the high visibility of the Small Motto or the ultralow mintage of the proof-only 1873, but only 65,000 business strikes were produced, and it brings a hefty premium in all grades. This attractive, original example has significant underlying mint red, and luster that has evenly mellowed over each side. The strike is strong, and there are no mentionable marks. Population: 1 in 64+ Red and Brown, 10 finer (6/11).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 22NG, PCGS# 3613)
