    1864 Two Cent, MS66 Red
    Small Motto, FS-401

    1864 2C Small Motto, FS-401, MS66 Red NGC. This popular Guide Book variety, best distinguished by the short D in GOD, easily ranks as one of the most important entries in the two cent series. While the low-mintage 1872 business strike is more costly in most grades, at the Gem level and above, the two issues are nearly equals as the keys to the series.

    This boldly struck Premium Gem is carefully preserved with considerable glowing Red surfaces. Deep orange-gold and peach shadings in the centers cede to lighter copper-gold color close to the margins. Spectacular eye appeal. Census: 7 in 66 Red, 0 finer (6/20).
    Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 7-8/2008), lot 1562.

    Coin Index Numbers: (Variety PCGS# 38234, Base PCGS# 3581)

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
