Red Gem 1864 Small Motto Two Cent1864 2C Small Motto MS65 Red PCGS. CAC. FS-401. One of the bookend keys to the series, along with the 1873 proof-only issues, the 1864 Small Motto makes up just a tiny fraction of two cent pieces bearing that date. The most visible difference between the Small Motto type and its Large Motto counterpart is the D in GOD, which is short on the Small Motto but tall on the Large. This splendid piece offers light pinkish-gold patina accented by shades of heather. The eye appeal is on the premium side, and there is little evidence of either contact or carbon. Certified in a first-generation PCGS holder. Population: 18 in 65 Red, 3 finer (11/10).
