1864-P Two Cent Piece MS64BN

Description

The Two-Cent Piece, designed by James Barton Longacre, is among the most historic pieces of coinage in United States history. The reason that this coin has retained its importance throughout the years is because it is the first United States coin to display the motto of “IN GOD WE TRUST.” Shortly after the production of the Two-Cent Piece, all United States coinage displayed this motto. This 1864 Large Motto Two-Cent Piece was struck during the series’ first year of issue and has been graded in Mint State 64 Brown condition. Out of all 1864 Large Motto Two-Cent Pieces struck, only 927 examples have been graded in MS64BN condition, making this example a remarkable Condition Rarity.
