    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, 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).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2968, PCGS# 11199)
