    Finest Certified Judd-498, 1866 Five-Cent Pattern

    1866 Five-Cents, Judd-498, Pollock-584, R.7, PR 65 Red and Brown, PCGS. The obverse is similar to the adopted design except for the tiny motto at the top of that side and the ball at the bottom of the shield separating the digits in the date. Struck in copper or bronze with a plain edge. The surfaces are quite bright for a copper coin of this age, due in part to the heavy die polish in the fields and also due to the light, vivid colors seen throughout. Portions of original mint red are scattered across each side with a thin band of mint red highlighting IN GOD WE TRUST. Formerly considered an R.8 in the Judd reference, Pollock dropped the rarity rating to R.7 when he combined both copper and bronze strikings. Nevertheless, this is the finest example certified (5/96) with no others in any grade, and it is very likely the finest piece known of this very scarce pattern. (PCGS# 60498)
