Very satisfying acquisition.
It is essential that this coin be preserved in an air tight, to retain the remaining luster.

It looks like the coin is already in a slab. Very nice coin!

There's something about fire-orange copper that draws my attention. Well done!

Excellent choice! I love the whole 2-cent series in both types of strikes. I also happen to own this same coin in the same grade! It happens to be one of my most beautiful Proofs.
