1866 Copper Shield Nickel Pattern
Judd-502, PR66 Brown

1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-502, Pollock-588, R.8, PR66 Brown PCGS. CAC. The central feature of the obverse design is a heraldic shield with arrows, topped by a small cross, with clusters of laurel leaves draped on each side. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST appears above the shield, the date below. This is the same design adopted for business strike shield nickels of 1866. The reverse design has a tall numeral 5 enclosed within a laurel wreath and the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the rim. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Fully struck with exquisite detail in all the design elements. The fields are deeply reflective and show beautiful shades of golden-brown and cerulean blue toning. The surfaces are virtually free of distractions. This is the finest Brown example certified by NGC or PCGS (9/12).
Ex: Hoffman (Melnick, 11/1982), lot 43; Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 1661. (PCGS# 60698)

If my clients were to auction something of significance, having Mike as the auctioneer would be a deal maker as far as I am concerned.
