Description

Popular 1866 Washington Five Cent
Nickel, Judd-481, Proof

1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-481, Pollock-571, Low R.7--Spot Removed--NCS. Proof.
Design. A head of Washington faces right on the obverse, with the date below and GOD AND OUR COUNTRY around. The final 6 in the date is much larger than the first 6 and is apparently recut at least once. The reverse has a large 5 within a laurel wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary. There are probably 10 to 12 examples of Judd-481 known. The die pairing is also known in copper (Judd-482) with about five or six known. This pattern issue was undoubtedly struck for sale to collectors, given the extreme interest in all things Washington during the 1860s.

Physical Description. The obverse has light champagne toning over light gray surfaces, with extensive swirling hairlines. The reverse is lighter gray with similar hairlines, and an obvious spot that was removed near the right ribbon end.

Provenance. Ex: Stack's (10/2003), lot 1030.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (NGC ID# 29KL, PCGS# 60677)
