    1863 Washington Two Cent
    Copper-Nickel
    Judd-310, PR66 Cameo

    1863 2C Two Cents, Judd-310, Pollock-375, Low R.7, PR66 Cameo 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 copper-nickel with a plain edge. Examples were also struck in bronze and aluminum. The bronze and copper-nickel pieces have approximately the same number of survivors: "fewer than a half dozen known" of those in bronze, "about a half dozen known" of those in copper-nickel. This piece retains significant portions of original mint red on each side with only slight mellowing evident. Sharply detailed throughout.
