    1870 Two Cent in Nickel
    Judd-792, PR65+
    Only Three Pieces Known

    1870 2C Two Cents, Judd-792, Pollock-878, R.8, PR65+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The dies are the regular two cent piece of 1870, but here struck in nickel with a plain edge. notes that "fewer than 3 known." Also struck in copper (but probably masquerading as a regular issue proof), aluminum, and silver-copper ore native to Michigan. All of these issues are rare. The last nickel example we sold was in our 1997 ANA Signature. The surfaces are bright and the fields are highly reflective with steel-blue color on the obverse, layered pale rose and steel-blue on the reverse.
