Lot 1073

1873 Two Cents. Closed 3. PCGS graded Proof 63 Brown. Has at least 50% mint red still present. A frosty to satiny-mirror sparkler with strong color and a bold strike throughout all of the reverse details, plus an impeccably bold shield. Often, a so-so impact was left following the recoil of the likely worn dies that struck this year's coinage, especially on the earlier Closed 3 variety; but in a few instances like the present one, the opposite is the case and the coin has a very convincing strike. A popular year due to it being issued only in Proof. Mintage: 600 pieces (PCGS # 3651) .
Estimated Value $2,000 - 2,400.
