    Unusual Two-Headed Washington Nickel, Judd-526/Struck in White Metal

    1866 Five-Cents, Judd-526, Pollock-554, R.7, PR 63 PCGS. Two obverse dies were muled to produce this unusual two-headed coin. Each side shows George Washington facing right, the date below, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above. The dies appear identical, but upon close examination show microscopic differences. Struck in white metal with a plain edge on an oversized planchet. The surfaces have a pewter-gray patina with a faint overlay of rose. A planchet flake is out of the center of the "obverse" and there are several parallel stress lines in the planchet on the "reverse" which account for the grade. Like the Judd-520 above, at one time Sylvester Crosby also owned three examples of this unusual muling.
