Description:
Pleasing 1865 Shield Nickel
Prototype, Judd-416, PR65
1865 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-416, Pollock-488, High R.6, PR65 NGC.
Design.
The obverse features the familiar shield motif used for regular-issue coinage in 1866, but dated 1865. The reverse design is the Rays variety used in 1866 and early 1867. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary.
USPatterns.com believes that original prototypes of the shield nickel and later restrikes were made using the same Judd-416 dies. There are two reverse dies known for the issue, one with a prominent center dot and the other without. The die with the center dot was used to strike regular proofs in 1866, confirming that it was in use before the era when most restrikes were produced. There is also an early auction appearance of the issue in the Mickley Collection (Woodward, 10/1867), lot 2241, which supports the pattern's status as a legitimate prototype. The reverse die without the center dot was used on pieces that were struck after 1868, according to research by Victoria Stone-Moledor. The present coin has the reverse center dot and can claim to be a true prototype of the Shield nickel.

Physical Description.
The design elements are strongly impressed, with fine definition on the star centers. The brilliant surfaces have just a wisp of lavender toning. An extremely attractive example of this popular issue. NGC Census: 3 in PR65; 3 finer, one of which is a PR65 Cameo. PCGS Population: None in PR65, 1 finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Fraser Collection (Stack's, 3/1978), lot 608.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 60598)
