That's just blasphemy sel_69l!
This is a really nice example of a RPD, there are no known overdates in the Two Cent series any longer, both were disproven the 1864 over 65 and the 1869 over 68. This coin shows more separation on the serifs of the 1 than I normally see.
I'd love to see much larger photos of the date area, and complete shots of the Obverse and Reverse as I'm having trouble identifying which RPD this one is. I'm usually able to nail that pretty quickly too. I'm pretty sure it's a Leone 7H as the inside left of the shield area has some clashing. Is there a die crack going upwards from the "T" in Trust on the banner (obverse) to the rim edge?
Does the reverse have these following areas present? If so then it's the Leone 7H variety.
