Judd-462, PR63 Brown
Design. The obverse features a portrait of Washington facing right with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and the date below. The reverse has the denomination 5 CENTS centered in a laurel wreath, with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST above. Struck in copper with a plain edge.
Commentary. The base of an errant 1 shows to the left of the date on all examples seen of this issue. USPatterns.com estimates a population of fewer than a dozen pieces extant. An early appearance of Judd-462 was in the Parmelee Sale (New York Coin & Stamp, 6/1890), lot 163. The cataloger mistakenly identified that specimen as a bronze piece.
Physical Description. An attractive specimen of this rare pattern. Iridescent crimson-red and lavender toning contributes to the exceptional eye appeal. Scattered handling marks define the grade. NGC Census: 1 in PR63 Brown, 3 finer. PCGS Population: None in PR63 Brown; one in PR63 Red and Brown; three finer (12/08).
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 60657)
