    Gem Proof 1896 Five-Cent Pattern, Judd-1770

    1896 Five-Cents, Judd-1770, Pollock-1987, R.6, PR 65 PCGS. A large shield is used as the central device with two long poles behind, one with a Phrygian cap on top, the other with an eagle, a scroll with LIBERTY engraved on it is draped across the center of the shield, the date is below, and E PLURIBUS UNUM above. The reverse has a large numeral 5 in the center with CENTS below, surrounded by a curved olive sprig, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. Struck in an experimental alloy of German silver with between 61% and 66% copper, the remaining alloy of nickel and zinc. Plain edge. Essentially problem-free surfaces, the pewter-gray caste of the coin has taken on a light overlay of ice-blue and rose patina. A lovely example of this popular, late date pattern. (PCGS# 61770)
