    1872 Two Cent Piece, PR67 Red
    Sole Finest Red Proof Certified

    1872 2C PR67 Red PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Collectors of the two cent series are well aware of the challenge that the 1872 issue presents as a business strike, particularly in high grade. Fewer than two dozen pieces are designated Red at PCGS, and the finest of those are MS66. Red proofs are somewhat more collectible, and there exists a Red proof at PCGS that is finer than all of the circulation strikes: this coin. This is the sole Superb Gem Red 1872 proof two cent piece at PCGS and NGC combined (9/20). A lone Red Cameo example is also reported at PCGS, although it grades only PR64+. This piece displays a sharp strike and appreciable reflectivity in the fields. Golden-orange hues adorn the fields, and the surfaces are entirely devoid of marks. Only a couple of microscopic pepper specks are visible on each side with a loupe. Population: 1 in 67 Red, 0 finer (9/20).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2752, PCGS# 3650)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin & zinc
