1868 2C, BN F12BN Certification #28864715, PCGS #3597

Expert Comments

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 possible 6 protruding from the denticles beneath the 6 of the date) and a possible 1868/7 overdate (subject to further confirmation).
