    1872 Two Cent Piece, MS65 Red and Brown
    A Condition Rarity

    1872 2C MS65 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. The majority of 1872 two cent pieces certified as Mint State are actually proofs masquerading in Mint State holders. However, this Gem specimen is a true business strike, and extremely rare as such. The presence of a die crack at the lower left reverse confirms its business strike status. Both sides show considerable faded mint red with attractive medium brown toning. Cartwheel luster is abundant, with generally strong design definition, although some leaves on the obverse are weak, and the reverse is weak at the ribbon bow. Population: 11 in 65 Red and Brown, 0 finer (11/11).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 5NAW, PCGS# 3613)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin & zinc
