    Gilt 1860 Five Dollars, Judd-272

    1860 P$5 Five Dollar, Judd-272, Pollock-320, Low R.6, PR62 Gilt ANACS. Struck in copper with a reeded edge and later gilt, presumably outside the mint. The obverse introduces the right facing bust of Liberty with three large stars on her cap, a motif familiar to Standard Silver collectors but first used on Judd-271 and Judd-272. The date is quite small. The reverse features a small eagle with a curved shield, clutching the banner E PLURIBUS UNUM in its beak along with the usual olive branch and arrows in its claws. Identical to Judd-283 except for the change in date. This pattern was for a large diameter, thin planchet Half Eagle, designed to keep ungodly individuals from hollowing out gold coins and replacing their content with a less valuable metal. This well struck and flashy specimen has a single diagonal slide mark through the chin that decides the grade. (NGC ID# 29DF, PCGS# 12078)
