    1873 Two Cent, PR64 Red and Brown
    Open 3 Restrike

    1873 2C Open 3 PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. The last two cent issue, one of several denominations abolished under the "Crime of '73." The Open 3 two cents are much rarer than their Closed 3 counterpart and are considered restrikes. Breen's Proof Encyclopedia opines that only one is seen for every nine or 10 of the Closed 3s. The clearest diagnostic, besides the numeral difference, is the here-obvious die line running horizontally from the left base of the T in TRUST. The hazy reflective surfaces are primarily orange-red, with brown device high points. There is little obvious carbon, although a tick appears in the lower wreath on the reverse. Population: 62 in 64 (1 in 64+) Red and Brown, 22 finer (6/12).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 2754, PCGS# 3655)
