DLRC #: 1450935 // PCGS #: 3612

The 1872 2-cent business strike is the key to set and much tougher than the 1864 small motto in our experience. Super rare in gem. There are just 3 MS65 BN examples at PCGS with none finer. CAC approved for quality and eye appeal. The last PCGS MS65 RB realized $12,925 at auction (1/13: Heritage). This coin has enough red that it should possibly have been considered for RB. CAC approved for quality.
