rich frost, very close to red (OGH)
Ron Guth: The 1868 Two Cent piece is similar in rarity to the 1867. The only varieties worthy of mention are a misplaced date (with a possibly 6 protruding from the denticles beneath the 6 of the date) and a possible 1868/7 overdate (subject to further confirmation).
