    1870 Two Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-791, PR66 Cameo
    Two or Three Extant

    1870 2C Two Cent, Judd-791, Pollock-877, High R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The dies are that of the regular two cent piece of 1870. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. cites a population of three confirmed pieces. They were probably struck for sale to collectors rather than as dies trials, but in any event are major rarities. This example is distinct from the PR65 Cameo piece we handled in August 2014. Both sides are brilliant and deeply contrasted, as expected of a high-grade aluminum proof. A couple of natural streaks appear in the upper right portion of the shield and from the first S in STATES to the wreath. An eye-catching off-metal rarity with the endorsement of CAC.
