    Copper 1863 Two Cent Piece, Judd-312A
    PR64 Red and Brown

    1863 2C Two Cents, Judd-312A, Pollock-377, R.4, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. Similar to the adopted two cent piece of the following year except that the motto reads GOD OUR TRUST on the obverse, and the word CENTS is sharply curved within the wreath on the reverse. Struck in copper or bronze with a plain edge. This basic design was struck in both bronze and copper, and also on multiple weight planchets that range from 76 grains to 101 grains. The difference between copper and bronze strikings can only be definitively determined by metallurgical analysis, but both PCGS and NGC (flip included) have called this a 312a, which is a copper piece. The surfaces are slightly mellowed with an overlay of blue-brown color on each side. A couple of minor spots keep this piece from the Gem category.
