    1864 Two Cent in Copper or Bronze
    Judd-366, Small Motto, PR66 Red and Brown

    1864 2C Small Motto Two Cent, Judd-366, Pollock-433, High R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. Similar to the regular proof Small Motto two Cent piece, but CENTS is widely curved. Within the motto, WE is die doubled. Struck in copper or bronze with a plain edge. These 1864 two cent patterns exist with both Large and Small mottoes, suggesting different striking periods. Fewer than a half dozen of this type are believed to exist, according to Amber and copper-brown surfaces display an overlay of light gold, blue, and sea-green patina. A flashy and predictably sharp Premium Gem with a terrific pedigree.
    Ex: John H. Clapp; Clapp Estate (1942); Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Collection, Part I (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 148.
