Rarity-8 Copper 1866 Washington Nickel, Judd-471

1866 5C Washington Five Cents, Judd-471, Pollock-563, R.8, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. A bust of George Washington faces right, with the date below in minute digits, and IN GOD WE TRUST above in much larger letters. The reverse features a short 5 within a wreath, which has unusually broad leaf clusters. The 5 of the denomination has a repunched upright. No CENTS is present, consistent with the three cent nickel introduced the year before. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Deeply toned in golden-brown, ruby-red, and electric-blue. Well struck, and unblemished aside from a small spot on the obverse border at 5 o'clock. Although Judd-470, the nickel alloy variant, is relatively available, as patterns go, Judd-471 is a major rarity. The present piece is the only Judd-471 certified by PCGS. NGC has certified exactly one example, as PR64 Brown. Judd-471 shares the same Pollock number, P-563, with the bronze-alloy Judd-472, which is also rare. (PCGS# 70667)
