Popular 1866 Judd-470 Washington Five Cent Piece

1866 5C Washington Five Cents, Judd-470, Pollock-562, Low R.6, PR62 PCGS. On the obverse, a bust of George Washington faces right, the legend IN GOD WE TRUST above and the date below. A wreath of laurel on the reverse encloses a large numeral 5 with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. During the 1860s, collecting Washingtonia (or Washingtoniana as some people prefer), was a robust numismatic specialty. There is little doubt that these patterns were created specifically to market to contemporary collectors. This sharply struck proof has moderately reflective surfaces with light gray color. A few faint hairlines and tiny spots limit the grade. Quite a few of these pieces must have been made, as at least two dozen still exist today.
From The Jones Beach Collection. (PCGS# 60666)
