    1871 Two Cent, MS66 Red
    Radiant Mint Luster

    1871 2C MS66 Red PCGS. CAC. 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).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 5NAU, PCGS# 3611)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin & zinc
