Jaime Hernandez:

This is the highest mintage Proof coin in the Two Cent series. Even with its higher mintage this coin is tough in PR66 ondition, as there are no examples graded higher. Coins displaying Red surfaces are even more challenging to obtain as the majority of coins in existence fall in the Brown and Red Brown category.
