    1836 Two Cent in Copper
    Judd-54, PR64+ Red and Brown

    1836 P2C Two Cents, Judd-54, Pollock-57, Low R.6, PR64+ Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features a standing eagle facing right and perched on a cloud, surrounded by UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and date 1836 separated by two dots. The obverse die shows the A in STATES corrected from an E underneath. The reverse shows TWO / CENTS in arcs surrounded by an olive wreath, struck in copper with a plain edge. This is an attractive survivor of this pattern emission despite the presence of a trio of obverse die cracks, which, according to USPatterns.com, mark these as restrikes. Fiery orange fields contrast nicely against brown devices and lettering. Possibly two dozen survive in all grades. Population: 1 in 64+ Red and Brown, 3 finer (8/20).
