1871 Two Cent, MS65+
1871 2C MS65+ Red PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The 1871 represents one
of the more difficult non-keys in the two cent series. Gems with
Red surfaces are particularly scarce. Radiant mint luster washes
over light copper-orange surfaces, and strike definition is strong
throughout. That includes the olive leaves, shield lines, and
wreath elements. A few specks of carbon and a single tick in the
reverse field left of the 2 are trivial imperfections that barely
stand in the way of a full Premium Gem assessment. Population: 19
in 65 (2 in 65+) Red, 5 finer (7/20).
Radiant Mint Luster
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 5NAU, PCGS# 3611)
Weight: 6.22 grams
Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin & zinc
