The 1872 Two Cent piece is scarce and commands a premium in all grades. In Uncirculated condition it is really scarce and only serious collectors can usually own one, as examples in Gem condition will cost thousands of dollars. Examples in Uncirculated Red Brown condition are scarce in all grades. And examples in Uncirculated Red condition are extremely scarce, especially in MS66 condition or higher.
