    1863 Two Cent in Aluminum, PR65 Cameo
    Judd-314, Possibly Unique

    1863 2C Two Cents, Judd-314, Pollock-379, R.8, PR65 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse design is that of the regular-issue 1864 two cent pieces, but the ribbon reads GOD OUR TRUST. The reverse is also similar to the 1864 coins, save that CENTS is more sharply curved. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge.

    This piece is possibly unique in this metal, although examples, less rare, are known in bronze and/or copper and copper-nickel. This piece shows well-mirrored surfaces and frosted devices that appear close to a Cameo designation. Some light hairlines and planchet striations (typical of aluminum planchets) appear, and a long, arcing die crack runs along the lower obverse from rim to rim.
    Ex: Julian Leidman (1978); J.E. Drew.
