    1869 Two Cent Struck in Pure Copper
    Judd-672, PR66+ Brown

    1869 2C Two Cent, Judd-672, Pollock-Unlisted, High R.7, PR66+ Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Struck from the regular dies for the two cent piece in copper with a plain edge. The standard composition for the two cent piece was a bronze alloy consisting of 95% copper and 5% tin and zinc. Judd-672 is reported as pure copper with no alloy, thus a departure from the standard composition. The PCGS Population Report lists three certified examples. This Premium Gem is the finest, and the others grade PR65 Brown and PR64 Red and Brown (1/21). These regular dies pieces in various metals are thought to be from complete sets struck for sale to contemporary collectors. Considerable chocolate-brown has accompanying vibrant blue and violet toning, with splashes of original orange mint color on the reverse.
