1865 Two Cent Piece in Copper-Nickel
1865 2C Two Cents, Judd-409, Pollock-478, High R.6, PR65 Cameo
PCGS. CAC. Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. Termed a "trial piece struck
from regular dies" by Judd, this is the standard two cent design,
but struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. Approximately a
dozen pieces are known. Variants are also known in nickel, silver,
and native copper-silver alloy. This is a brightly reflective
example with a wide range of colors on each side, varying from deep
cherry-red to yellow-tinged brown. The devices stand out in bold
cameo relief against the mirrored fields.
