1869 Two Cent Struck in Pure Copper
1869 2C Two Cent, Judd-672, Pollock-Unlisted, High R.7, PR66
Brown PCGS. 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 (4/20). 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.
