    1836 Two Cent Piece in Billon
    Judd-53, PR62

    1836 P2C Two Cents, Judd-53, Pollock-54, Low R.6, PR62 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The first pattern two cent design. The obverse has a small eagle that stands on a cloud, with the date below and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA at the borders. The reverse has the denomination widely spaced within a peripheral laurel wreath. Struck in billon (90% copper, 10% silver) with a reeded edge. Coin turn alignment. The dusky gray-rose surfaces show subtle undertones of oil-slick iridescence. The strike details are somewhat irregular; the piece appears it was struck from misaligned dies with weak definition on one portion of the margin and strong detailing on the opposite part of the rim.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2966, PCGS# 11196)
