    Red Gem 1869 Two Cent Piece

    1869 2C MS65 Red PCGS. A dusky rose-gold and olive Gem with a pinpoint-sharp strike and vibrant cartwheel shimmer. Contact marks are fully absent, and only a couple of tiny toning flecks on the reverse deny an even higher grade. Mintages of two cent pieces dwindled after the Civil War, and full Red 1869 pieces are much tougher to locate than their 1864 counterparts. Population: 24 in 65 Red, 2 finer (9/06).
    From The Jones Beach Collection.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 22ND, PCGS# 3605)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin & zinc
