Three Cent Nickel Design on Nickel-Sized Copper Planchet
1871 Five Cent, Judd-1051, PR64 Red and Brown

1871 5C Five Cent, Judd-1051, Pollock-1185, R.6, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. The obverse is similar to the issued three cent nickel, although larger in scale. The reverse features a bushy wreath with V above CENTS. CENTS is curved, and the Roman numeral V is shaded on the right. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This interesting design was struck in nickel, copper, aluminum, and there is a unique piece in aluminum on a wide planchet in the Connecticut State Library. The surfaces on this example are bright overall with highly reflective fields. There are occasional dabs of blue and brown on the obverse, while the reverse is predominantly lime-green. (NGC ID# 2A2M, PCGS# 71310)
