PROOF TWO CENT PIECE 1871 HERE IS ANOTHER OF MY TYPE COINS I AM SELLING. THIS IS A VERY SHORT LIVED SERIES - TWO CENT PIECE. THIS ONE WAS DATED IN 1871. THE BEST AND NEATEST THING ABOUT THIS PROOF 2 CENT PIECE IS THAT IT SHOWS LOTS OF COLORS ON IT WHEN ROTATED UNDER A LIGHT. YOU CAN SEE LOADS OF GREENS AND MAUVES. IT IS A VERY PRETTY COIN. I KNOW FROM MY SCANS YOU CANT TELL THAT BUT IF WHOMEVER GETS THE COIN DOESNT LIKE IT OR AGREE WITH MY DESCRIPTION OF IT THEN YOU CAN RETURN IT AND GET EVEN YOUR POSTAGE PAID BACK TO YOU. THIS IS A VERY CLEAN COIN IN TERMS OF THE AMOUNT OF TICKS IT HAS. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY PCGS GRADED AS THEY DID EXCEPT SHEN I SENT IT INTO THEM IT WAS IN A NGC HOLDER WITH THE SAME GRADE AND I GUESS PCGS DIDNT WANT TO APPEAR TO BE "EASIER" WITH THEIR GRADES THAN NGC IS OR WAS IN THE GRADING OF THIS BEAUTY. ITS ONLY CURSE WAS TO HAVE TURNED IN TO THE LIGHT BROWN COLOR THAT IT HAS AND ALL COPPER DOES AFTER ONLY ABOUT 140 YEARS !!! THE COIN HAS A VERY NICE FUL WELL DETAILED STRIKE AND IT DOES SHOW LOTS OF VERY PRETTY COLORS. IT WILL MAKE AN EXCELLENT TYPE COIN FOR A SAVY COLLECTOR AS IT DID FOR ME.

THIS ONE HAS SOME SPARKLE BUT NOT LIKE YOU WOULD FIND ON A TRADE DOLLAR FROM THIS PERIOD AS ITS MADE FROM COPPER AND NOT SILVER. PCGS HAS
