Description:
Copper 1866 Shield Nickel Pattern
Judd-495, PR64 Brown
Ex: Farouk
1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-495, Pollock-582, High R.7, PR64 Brown NGC. The obverse design features the familiar heraldic shield with arrows, cross, and laurel branches. The shield is low in the field and divides the date 18-66. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST is engraved in small letters above the shield. The reverse shows a short numeral 5, centered in a thick laurel wreath, with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. Struck in copper with a plain edge.
The present coin boasts an illustrious pedigree, appearing in some of the most important collections of the 20th century. It is a well struck specimen with crisp detail in all devices. The reflective fields are accented by attractive shades of crimson and electric blue toning. The surfaces have relatively few handling marks for the grade, and eye appeal is excellent. Faint marks near the base and tip of the large 5 will identify future auction appearances.
