    1863 Two Cent in Bronze
    Judd-316, PR66+ Red
    Single Finest at PCGS

    1863 2C Two Cent Piece, Judd-316, Pollock-381, High R.6, PR66+ Red PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The design is similar to the issued 1864 Large Motto two cent piece, except dated 1863. Not a transitional pattern, though, but a backdated novodel made circa-1870. Struck in copper or bronze with a plain edge. confirms that the scrolls below WE resemble those on regular proof 1870 two cent pieces, and a defective serif on the D in UNITED also resembles 1870 proofs. The present specimen is single finest among a dozen pieces certified by PCGS (11/20). It is sharply struck, unabraded, and virtually void of carbon. The sole imperfection is a subtle retained lamination between the CE in CENTS. The orange-gold and salmon-pink color is ideal. The 8 in the date is repunched south.
