    1864 2C Two Cents, Judd-367, Pollock-433, R.8, PR64+ Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Struck from the dies for the proof Small Motto two cent piece. The reverse is the so-called "Reverse of 1863" that shows the word CENTS widely curved. Within the motto, WE is die doubled. Struck in copper or bronze with a plain edge. Small Motto examples were struck in bronze/copper, copper-nickel, and aluminum. Large Motto pieces were also produced in these same compositions (plus nickel). Saul Teichman states the existence of both Small and Large Motto variants suggests two striking periods. Fewer than a half dozen pieces are believed known in copper or bronze. This is a magnificently toned pattern. The center of the reverse retains a cherry-red center, while the remainder of each side displays rich brown and deep blue patina. Fully struck in all areas.
