    1864 Two Cent Piece in Nickel
    Judd-372A, PR8
    Only Two Pieces Are Known

    1864 2C Two Cents, Judd-372A, Pollock-441, R.8, PR8 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Struck as a regular dies trial piece. This is the Large Motto variant that was struck in nickel with a plain edge. A remarkably wide range of experimental strikes were produced in both motto sizes, including copper, copper-nickel, aluminum, and nickel. Only two pieces are known of this Large Motto nickel variant. The low grade of this piece indicates it was carried as a pocket piece for many years, most likely long after the denomination was discontinued. It seems unlikely it was dropped into the channels of commerce and circulated alongside other two cent pieces as the surfaces are bright and clearly not copper or bronze. The wear is significant and somewhat irregular on the reverse where STATES is almost completely gone, but the remainder of the peripheral lettering is still present. This is a rare opportunity for the pattern collector. Only two pieces are known; the other has not been offered at public auction since 1980.
