Delicate tan and iridescence over the original mint red color, with no disturbances in the surfaces such as handling marks or dark spots of any consequence. A Proof only issue with fewer than 500 certified by PCGS in all grade categories of this particular and final year of striking of the two-cent piece--that number of course likely includes duplication of submissions. A key date that is always in high collector demand. Actually the number certified is very high, not because this particular date is easily found, for it is not. The reason is that this is the rarest of all Philadelphia Mint dates, and a little difference in grade can make a large difference in price.
