    Fascinating 1871 Two Cent Piece
    Struck on a Nickel Planchet, AU Details

    1871 Two Cent--Struck on a Nickel Planchet, Damaged--NCS. AU Details. 4.8 gm. Between an odd denomination and a wrong planchet, this is one of the oddest (and thus most enjoyable) errors this cataloger has ever encountered. Though the surfaces show light wear and several scrapes and digs, these flaws do not take away from its utterly fascinating nature. Included in this lot is an old ANACS certificate, a 1983 duplicate of the original dated January 9, 1979, picturing the piece.
