Description:
1868 High Date Five Cent in Nickel
Judd-633, Pollock-705, PR65 Cameo
1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-633, Pollock-705, R.5, PR65 Cameo NGC.
Design.
The obverse is similar to the regular-issue three cent nickel, although there are minor differences in lettering and position of Liberty's head. The date is high (Pollock-705). The reverse has a large Roman numeral V in the center, with a laurel wreath completely encircling. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary.
The V in the center reverse of this pattern is a precursor of what would become, 15 years later, the reverse of the Liberty Head nickel (1883-1913), an originally denominationless design that many collectors to this day call the "V nickel."

Physical Description.
Brilliant surfaces on each side offer bold contrast, with lots of appeal despite a couple of minor flecks that preclude an even finer grade. NGC Census: 3 in PR65 Cameo, 5 finer either by numerical grade or designation. PCGS Population: 1 in PR65 Cameo; 2 finer, one of which is a PR65 Deep Cameo (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Stack's private treaty.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
