Lot 1094
  Gem Red MS 66 1864 Large Motto. PCGS graded MS-66 Red. Large Motto. One of the finest available of this date, with PCGS reporting in their Population Report that just 33 have been so graded with a single coin graded higher. The surfaces retain their original mint color, unlike most which are darkly toned. Furthermore the fields and devices are pristine, no signs of contact from other coins. Free of the usual annoyances which seem to infect most early copper.

Lot 1097
  One of the Finest Known 1873 "Open 3" Two-Centers. PCGS graded Proof 66 Red. Vibrant red color throughout, and perfectly struck. One of just 500 coined in Proof, and obviously one of the very best to survive to this day.
This rarity is way up in the Condition Census count, as well you might imagine it would be. Pop: PCGS, 3 only this superb and full red. NGC: the same (multiple submissions possible). Really, hyperbole aside, this is a real condition rarity which deserves recognition by advanced collectors, whether of 2c pieces or of type coins, as it would fit splendidly into either kind of collection, wouldn't it? If you demand only the very best, here's the coin for you!
