1863 Pattern Two Cents. Bronze, plain edge. Judd-312. Pollock-377, Rarity-4. PCGS graded Proof 65 Brown. One of the finest graded of this issue, PCGS has graded 8 this high in brown, with just 2 graded higher in the brown or other categories. The surfaces are simply superb, with rich tawny brown with hints of original red in the mirror fields near the devices. Free of spots or other detractions that often mar copper. We are uncertain how much this coin weighs as it is certified, and thus don't know which of the three different planchet weights this one is. A glorious example for the numismatist to put away (PCGS # 60467) .
Estimated Value $1,500 - 1,700.
From the Benson collection and purchased from Ira S. Reed's auction of April 27, 1945, lot 412 for $7.50.

Realized $2,070
