    Exceptional 1866 Washington Nickel, Judd-470

    1866 Five-Cents, Judd-470, Pollock-562, R.6, PR 64 PCGS. Pattern nickel for 1866 with the central device of Washington on the obverse, date below with the motto above. The reverse has a 5 in the center, surrounded by a wreath of laurel and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the perimeter. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The devices show an extraordinarily sharp impression on each side and the surfaces are bright overall with just the faintest hint of golden patina present. A couple of small planchet flakes are present, the most notable ones being to the left of the G in GOD and in the field above the first S in STATES. Several guide lines were scored into the die in the mint and appear as raised lines to the left of the date on the obverse. An exceptional coin for the grade.
    Ex: May-June Auction (Superior, 5-6/93), lot 1229. (PCGS# 60470)
