1863 Two Cent in Copper / Bronze
1863 2C Two Cents, Judd-312A, Pollock-377, R.4, PR66+ Red
and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Similar to the adopted two
cent piece of the following year except that the motto reads GOD
OUR TRUST on the obverse, and the word CENTS is sharply curved
within the wreath on the reverse. Struck in copper or bronze with a
plain edge. This basic design was struck in both bronze and copper,
and on multiple weight planchets that range from 76 grains to 101
grains, and also in variants that include copper-nickel and
aluminum. This beautiful example retains about half of the original
mint red, while the remainder of each side is deep blue. Fully
