Description

1875 Judd-1387 Nickel
PR66 Red and Brown

Regular Dies Strike in Copper
Numerically the Finest Certified

1875 5C Five Cents, Judd-1387, Pollock-1531, R.8, PR66 Red and Brown NGC. CAC.
Design.
The regular Shield nickel design, struck in copper with a plain edge.

Commentary. Only three or four examples of this pattern variety are known, and this is only the second piece we have handled; the first in 16 years. NGC has certified this piece and one they described as PR64 Red. PCGS has certified two examples graded PR64 Red and PR65 Red. The Newman specimen is numerically the finest Judd-1387 certified.

Physical Description. The extraordinarily bold strike and high wire rim around both sides gives the appearance of a thick planchet. Subdued mirrors display rich orange mint color blended with delicate bluish-brown patina. Both sides exhibit trivial carbon flecks evidencing the originality of its surfaces.

Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $35; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 71694)
