    1873 Two Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-1259, PR64+

    1873 2C Two Cent, Judd-1259, Pollock-1400, High R.7, PR64+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The design is that of the regular-issue two cent for the year 1873 with the Closed 3 in the date. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Saul Teichman, editor of USPatterns.com, cites the existence of two or three examples in aluminum and a single example of this design in copper. None of these would have been struck as dies trials. Instead, they were made for a small number of well-connected insiders. The present near-Gem, which matches the J.E. Drew coin, is frosty and brilliant with light hairlines and a diagnostic planchet void through the lower right leaves.
    Ex: D.M.X. Fretwell Estate Sale (Robert L. Hughes, 3/1981), lot 1048; J.E. Drew.
