    1836 Two Cent Pattern
    Judd-54, PR66 Brown

    1836 P2C Two Cents, Judd-54, Pollock-57, Low R.6, PR66 Brown NGC. The obverse of the present piece features a small eagle on a cloud, reminiscent of the Draped Bust silver dollar reverse design. The reverse has TWO CENTS in the center and is surrounded by a laurel wreath. Struck in copper with a plain edge. The dies have medal turn, and a lengthy crack passes through the eagle's right (facing) wing. These were most likely restruck in the late 1850s (or even later) from the heavily cracked obverse, as seen here. Approximately two dozen examples are known. The surfaces are deep cobalt-blue with tiny touches of original red around the letters of the denomination on the reverse. The fields are deeply mirrored, and there are no mentionable contact marks.
    From The Bob Simpson Collection. (NGC ID# 2968, PCGS# 11198)

    The staff at Heritage are amazing to work with. My wife and I were given the "red carpet treatment" from the moment we walked in. We felt safe and secure the moment we arrived.
