Description

Desirable 1866 Nickel Pattern
Judd-462, PR63 Brown

1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-462, Pollock-536, Low R.7, PR63 Brown NGC.
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).

Provenance.
Unknown.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (NGC ID# 29K8, PCGS# 60657)
