    Finest Known Judd-1052, Aluminum Five-Cent Pattern From 1871

    1871 Five-Cents, Judd-1052, Pollock-1186, R.7, PR 66 PCGS. The obverse repeats a familiar pattern with the devices closely resembling that on the adopted three-cent nickel, and the reverse has a backward V in the center with CENTS below, surrounded by a laurel wreath. Struck on a regular sized planchet and struck in aluminum with a plain edge. This is a spectacular aluminum pattern that is as bright as the day it was minted with no signs of oxidation on either side. One of perhaps only five pieces believed to exist today and the finest certified (5/96).
    Ex: George Polis Collection (B&M, 6/91), lot 1104; Major Lenox R. Lohr Collection (Empire Coin Co., 1961). (PCGS# 61052)
