    Tied for Finest Known

    1864 2c PCGS MS66 RD (Small Motto)


    The first coin to ever have the motto IN GOD WE TRUST placed on it was the Two-Cent piece in 1864. This earlier version of production displayed smaller sized letters and the obverse hub was only briefly used. As a result, the Small Motto version is now one of the two key issues in the series along with the 1872. Gem issues are scarce, let alone fully red examples. As only 8 pieces have been graded by PCGS as MS66 Red, this coin is considered a Condition Census example. Incredibly well-preserved with stunning red mirrors, the strike is also something to behold. A finer example cannot be found, privately or publicly, allowing this piece to be the capstone of what could in the future, possibly be the finest Type Set or Collection of Two Cent pieces.

    Registry Quality

    1865 2c PCGS Proof 66 RD ex: D.L. Hansen


    A low mintage proof of just 500 coins struck. Among the finest in this category, this registry quality gem proof displays extraordinary eye appeal! As expected the strike is needle sharp and each side displays marvelous field reflectivity and beautiful cherry-red and golden-orange color.

    Registry Quality Gem Proof

    1872 2c PCGS Proof 66 RD


    Stunning gem example from a low mintage proof of just 950 coins struck. Only two examples between both services have been graded finer at this level of contrast, with only a single cameo specimen known! Gorgeous mirrors glow with golden tints and bold reflectivity. Needle sharp details and wonderful eye appeal, a great piece for the registry collector.
