Nickel, Judd-473, PR64
Design. Obverse: Washington portrait facing right, with IN GOD WE TRUST above and date below. Reverse: Regular With Rays design adopted for the year. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.
Commentary. Washingtonia was one of the most popular areas of American numismatics during the middle part of the 19th century. This popularity is reflected in the number of Washington patterns created for the new five cent coin in 1866. Including off-metal issues, 40 different patterns were produced.
Physical Description. The coin is fully struck, with crisp detail on all device elements. The surfaces have the granular quality often seen on this issue--due to the hardness of the nickel planchets--with pale golden-rose toning overall. An attractive, popular pattern. NGC Census: 1 in PR64, 3 finer. PCGS Population: 10 in PR64, 6 finer (12/08).
Provenance. Ex: Stack's private treaty transaction.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 60669)
