||1872 2C PR67 Red and Brown NGC. The production of circulation-strike two cent pieces was winding down in 1872, but proofs were made in larger numbers for the collector trade. Still, only 950 proofs were struck and high-grade survivors are very scarce today. Red and Brown is accurate, but there is a significant presence of original mint luster on each side. The surfaces are pristine; the only pedigree identifier we see is a small, irregularly shaped speck of grease that was struck into the upper shield lines. Census: 5 in 67 (1 in 67 S) Red and Brown, 0 finer (10/13). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
