    1863 Two Cent Pattern in Copper or Bronze
    Judd-312, PR65 Brown

    1863 2C Two Cents, Judd-312, Pollock-377, R.4, PR65 Brown PCGS. CAC. The obverse is similar to the regular issue obverse of 1864, with GOD OUR TRUST on the ribbon above the shield. The reverse shows the denomination 2 CENTS sharply curved in a wreath with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. Struck in bronze or copper with a plain edge. According to George Eckfeldt's journal these pieces were struck in late 1863. They have been found on planchets of various weights, ranging from 76 grains to 101 grains. Each side is deep chocolate-brown, but significant mirroring can still be seen in the fields.
