PR64 Red and Brown
Design. The head of Liberty wearing a coronet faces left, much as on the circulating three cent nickel, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and the date 1871 below. On the reverse a laurel wreath encloses 5 / CENTS, the latter in an upcurving arc. Struck in copper with a plain edge.
Commentary. Another "custom reverse" that was employed rather than the many 1866-67 reverse die choices that were undoubtedly left over from that extensive series of pattern five cent pieces.
Physical Description. Much delightful mint red remains on both sides of this pretty near-Gem coin, with excellent eye appeal. NGC Census: 1 in PR64 Red and Brown, 3 finer. PCGS Population: 4 in PR64 Red and Brown, 1 finer (12/08).
Provenance. Ex: Stack's (10/1986), lot 29.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 71313)
