Gem Proof Judd-495 Copper
1866 Shield Nickel

1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-495, Pollock-582, High R.7, PR65 Brown PCGS. CAC. A Shield design on the obverse is quite similar to the regularly issued design, although the shield is lower in the field, with the ball at the bottom dividing the date. At the top of the obverse, IN GOD WE TRUST is in very small letters. The reverse has a plain 5 inside a wreath consisting of two laurel branches tied at the bottom by a ribbon with bow. Outside the wreath, the statutory legend begins at 8 o'clock and ends at 4 o'clock. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Toned chocolate-brown with olive, aqua and rose undertones. Exactingly struck and undisturbed with no evidence of carbon. The single finest of only five pieces certified by either major service. Encapsulated in an old green label holder.
Ex: Superior, 10/1992, lot 1207, which realized $6,875. (NGC ID# 29KW, PCGS# 60691)
