    1864 Large Motto Two Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-372, PR65+

    1864 2C Two Cents, Judd-372, Pollock-442, R.8, PR65+ PCGS Ex: Simpson. Regular dies trial issue of the Large Motto two cent piece. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. These are interesting metallurgical pieces and come in both Large Motto and Small Motto variants. The Large Motto pieces, as seen here, were also struck in copper/bronze, copper-nickel, and nickel. This strike in aluminum is believed unique. The fields are brightly reflective, which establishes a deep "black" background for the heavily frosted devices. Easily identifiable by a carbon spot below the O in GOD.
    Ex: J.E. Drew; Simpson Collection.
