    1872 Two Cent Piece, MS65 Red and Brown
    Last Business-Strike Issue, Low Mintage

    1872 2C MS65 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. The odd-denomination two cent piece was long out of favor by 1872, and only 65,000 pieces were minted. This tiny issue would be the last business-strike mintage for the denomination, which was struck in proof format the following year and discontinued. The present coin is an impressive Gem, with sharply detailed design elements and reflective prooflike fields. Fine definition is observed on many leaf veins and the ribbon bow, while the surfaces show intermingled areas of copper-gold and light brown. Population: 10 in 65 Red and Brown, 0 finer (4/11).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22NG, PCGS# 3613)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin & zinc
