1871 5C Five Cents, Judd-1051, Pollock-1185, R.5, PR65 Red NGC....
Full Red 1871 Five Cent Pattern1871 5C Five Cents, Judd-1051, Pollock-1185, R.5, PR65 Red NGC. This practical design uses the three cent nickel obverse design in a larger format. The reverse has V CENTS in the center with the V reversed, surrounded by a wreath. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This piece, like every Judd-1051 seen by this cataloger, has the 7 in the date apparently punched over a sidewise 1. Blazing red mint luster characterizes this piece and is further enhanced by bright orange-red centers that deepen to cherry-red at the margins. A rare opportunity to acquire a full red copper pattern from the 1870s.
