NGC 2c 1865 Two Cent Piece Struck 35% Off-Center XF-40 Brown


1865 "Plain 5" 2 Cent piece struck 35% off-center at 11 O'Clock. An incredibly rare major error on a 2c piece, and with perhaps 10 examples of off-center strikes known for the entire series. These come on the market perhaps once or twice every decade, and so are extremely hard to acquire. This example has a perfect position off-center, showing the full date, much of the design, and nearly half the planchet. A coin which makes any collector say "wow", and it would certainly make the centerpiece of a collection.
