    1867 Two Cent Struck in Oroide
    Judd-557, PR62, Possibly Unique

    1867 2C Two Cents, Judd-557, Pollock-618, R.8, PR62 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular proof dies of the 1867 two cent here are struck with a plain edge in oroide. As the name suggests, oroide is a golden-colored metal, usually an alloy chiefly composed of copper and zinc. This piece is as expected in color, golden with an interesting near-vertical dark toning line through the rightmost shield stripe. The obverse die appears in reasonably good shape, but the reverse die shows extensive die cracks from the stem ends in the wreath through much of the peripheral lettering. This piece is the only example certified at either service, and "possibly unique." An example in the 1953 King Farouk Collection was listed as an "XF" but there are no modern auction records.
