    1863 Two Cent in Copper / Bronze
    Judd-312A, PR66+ Red and Brown

    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 struck.
