Description & Analysis

The total reported mintage of proof 1872 two-cent pieces includes an additional 198 coins struck for sale within the minor proof sets. This date seems to have survived in greater numbers than some of the earlier ones, perhaps because the rarity of currency strikes prompted their preservation.
