1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-497, Pollock-583, High R.7, PR64 PCGS....
1866 Shield Nickel Pattern, Judd-497, PR641866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-497, Pollock-583, High R.7, PR64 PCGS. Similar to the as-issued 1866 Shield nickel, but IN GOD WE TRUST is in a smaller font. The ball of the shield divides the date into two sections, each with two digits. On the reverse, the prominent 5 has a repunched upright, and several stars exhibit recutting. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The reflectiveness is somewhat subdued, and the planchet is quite porous on the reverse. A few lateral hairlines are seen in the obverse field. Certified in a green-label holder, this would be a desirable addition to an extended Shield nickel collection. Population: 1 in 64, 1 finer (3/13).
Ex: Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 3/2006), lot 952, which brought $10,350. (PCGS# 60693)
