blazing luster but dipped

Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1869 Two Cent piece is similar in rarity to the 1868 but is worth slightly more because of its lower mintage. This date boasts a minor (but valuable) Doubled Die Obverse variety and a couple of Repunched Date varieties (one of which also features a mis-placed date).
