    1863 Washington Two Cent in Bronze
    Judd-309, GW-671, PR64 Red and Brown

    1863 2C Two Cent, Judd-309, Pollock-374, Baker-38, Musante GW-671, R.8, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features a bust of Washington (Baker-38B) facing right with the motto GOD AND OUR COUNTRY around and 1863 below. The reverse is the design adopted for regular-issue two cent piece in 1864. Struck in bronze with a plain edge. Apparently fewer than a six pieces are known in this metal, plus about a half dozen in copper-nickel, and two confirmed in aluminum. This Red and Brown near-Gem proof is the first Judd-309 we have offered since we established our Permanent Auction Archive in 1993. Both sides are magnificently toned in shades of golden-orange, violet, rose, blue, and lemon-yellow color. A small spot occurs between ME in AMERICA.
