    1872 Two Cent Piece in Aluminum
    Judd-1184, PR68 Cameo

    1872 2C Two Cent, Judd-1184, Pollock-1324, High R.7, PR68 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Previously considered a regular dies trial striking. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. These pieces were actually struck for sale to collectors as part of complete off-metal sets. According to four or fewer such pieces are believed known. To underscore its rarity we cannot find in our Auction Records that we have sold such a piece, and those records begin in 1993. Copper pieces were also allegedly struck, yet only the ex: Farouk coin has been analyzed and confirmed as actually being in copper, rather than the standard bronze alloy. The surface preservation of this piece is exemplary. The aluminum is bright and unoxidized with deeply mirrored fields on each side and heavily frosted devices.
