    1869 Two Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-674, Well-Struck PR64 Cameo

    1869 2C Two Cents, Judd-674, Pollock-750, High R.7, PR64 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The 1869 regular-issue two cent dies were here used to strike this off-metal pattern, in aluminum with a plain edge. These and many similar patterns were produced for sale to collectors in complete off-metal sets. About a half dozen are known. This piece is most easily identified by a thin stripe of gray toning connecting the left ribbon end with the denticles at 9 o'clock. Otherwise the surfaces are largely coin-gray with a slight rose tinge. A thin planchet flaw protruding from the rightmost lower olive leaf and a couple of other small areas of roughness are typical of aluminum planchets. Population: 1 in 64 Cameo, 2 finer (10/20).
