    1865 Two Cent in Copper-Silver Alloy
    Judd-407, PR62

    1865 2C Two Cents, Judd-407, Pollock-477, High R.7, PR62 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A regular dies trial for the 1865 two cent. Struck in copper with streaks of silver with a plain edge. It has been said that these curious patterns were struck from native Michigan copper ore. About a dozen examples are thought to exist, per USPatterns.com. It appears copper and silver were pressed or rolled together to create the planchet for this strange experimental striking. The obverse is rich copper-brown with shades of purple, rose, and fire-orange, while the reverse is largely silver-gray with a number of streaky planchet imperfections.
    Ex: An Amazing Collection of United States Silver Dollars (Superior Galleries, 5/1991), lot 678.
