    White Metal Striking of the 1836 Two Cent Pattern, Judd-56A

    1836 P2C Two Cents, Judd-56A, Pollock-58, R.8, PR62 PCGS. Two-cent pattern with a spread-winged eagle on the obverse and date below. The reverse shows TWO CENTS in the center, surrounded by a laurel wreath. Struck in white metal with a reeded edge. The USPatterns.com website suggests that the white metal pieces are restrikes; however, we aren't certain that is correct as there is no evidence (at least on this piece) of having been struck from a shattered obverse die, as with the pieces that are known to be restrikes from the late 1850s. The surfaces are light gray overall with darker accents over the highpoints on each side. The coin is not especially lustrous, but then that wouldn't be expected from a white metal striking; however, there are no obvious contact marks on either side. One consignor has consigned a run of eleven two cent patterns to the FUN Auction, presenting the specialist with a rare opportunity.(#11210) (NGC ID# 296D, PCGS# 11210)
