    1836 Restrike Two Cent in Copper
    Judd-54, PR63 Brown

    1836 P2C Two Cents, Judd-54, Pollock-57, Low R.6 PR63 Brown PCGS. The obverse features a small eagle on a cloud, reminiscent of the Draped Bust silver dollar reverse design. The reverse has TWO CENTS in the center surrounded by a laurel wreath. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Undoubtedly a restrike made in the late-1850s, as characterized by the heavily die-cracked obverse. About two dozen copper pieces are believed known, but some are silver-plated or pickled (mercury plated or dipped). It is not known just how many restrikes were made, but a wide variety of compositions exist of the originals, including billon, copper, copper-nickel, and white metal. This is an attractive example whose obverse retains a fair amount of underlying red beneath the brown, while the reverse is more uniformly brown. There are no observable flaws on the piece, leaving us to wonder what the grade is about.
