    Gem Proof 1871 Five-Cent Pattern, Judd-1054

    1871 Five-Cents, Judd-1054, Pollock-1189, R.6, PR 65 Brown, PCGS. The obverse is, once again, similar to the adopted three-cent nickel design. The reverse has 5 CENTS in the center, surrounded by a laurel wreath. One difference in the layout of this coin is quoted in the Pollock reference by Tom DeLorey, the "head and wreath are the same size as the preceding, but set in smaller diameter fields." A side-by-side comparison with, say, the J-1052 above demonstrates what is meant by that statement. Struck in copper with a plain edge. The surfaces, while clearly of gem quality, are dark chocolate-brown throughout with bits of purple, scarlet, and sea-green scattered about. (NGC ID# 3ZL4, PCGS# 61054)
