    1865 Two Cent in Nickel
    Judd-409A, MS66+

    1865 2C Two Cent, Judd-409A, Pollock-479, High R.7, MS66+ PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The design is from the regular-issue two cent dies with a Fancy 5 in the date. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. A variety of 1865 two cent patterns were struck in copper, copper-nickel, and nickel. It was previously believed that silver examples also existed, but these are now thought to be silver-plated copper pieces. Fewer than a dozen Judd-409A representatives are reported to exist. This high-end Premium Gem is smooth and strongly struck with vibrant frosty mint luster and a hint of golden color. Laminations appear at the central reverse, as made.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29HV, PCGS# 60589)
