Description:
Possibly Unique 1866 Washington Five Cent
Pattern Struck in Brass
Judd-519, PR64
1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-519, Pollock-546, R.8, PR64 NGC.
Design.
Obverse: Washington portrait facing left with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and date below. Reverse: the Without Rays dies adopted for regular-issue coinage in 1867. Struck in brass with a plain edge.

Commentary.
The muling of these dies resulted in the curious display of the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA on both sides of the coin. The coin was struck outside the Mint from genuine dies. The issue was unknown to R.C. Davis when he published his research in The Coin Collector's Journal, and USPatterns.com believes the coin to be unique in brass.

Physical Description.
The coin is struck on a nonstandard planchet. It has a diameter of 21 mm, a thickness of 3 mm, and weighs 115.4 grains. The sharply struck surfaces have the yellow-green underlying color of brass with a significant overlay of brown patina. NGC Census: This is the only Judd-519 certified in any grade. PCGS Population: None (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Crosby Collection (Haseltine, 6/1883), lot 1793; Judson Brenner (1914 ANS Exhibit); Rare Coin Review 21 and 22 (Bowers and Ruddy, 1974), pp. 43 and 80; 65th Anniversary Sale (Stack's, 10/2000), lot 1599; Stack's private treaty transaction.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 60716)
