Description:
1884 'Holey' Five Cent, Judd-1724, PR66
1884 5C Five Cents, Judd-1724, Pollock-1934, Low R.6, PR66 NGC.
Design.
The Eastman Johnson "holey five cent" design. The obverse shows FIVE above and CENTS below a roughly octagonal opening in the planchet, with shields on either side. The reverse shows UNITED STATES OF AMERICA at the outer rim, with an inner circle of 13 stars and date 1884 below. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary.
One of the more interesting and yet unfortunate U.S. pattern coin designs. The central holes in the "annular" or ring-shaped patterns of 1884 and 1885 weakened the structural integrity of the blank planchets, resulting in irregular flowlines or slight warping seen on many pieces.

Physical Description.
The battleship-gray surfaces are remarkably pristine on this Premium Gem example, lightly tinged with gold and free of mentionable distractions. Probably two to three dozen exist. NGC Census: 3 in PR66, 4 finer. PCGS Population: 4 in PR66, 7 finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Stack's (9/1985).
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
(PCGS# 62154)
