    1860 Five Dollar in Copper
    Judd-272, PR63 Brown

    1860 P$5 Five Dollar, Judd-272, Pollock-320, Low R.6, PR63 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features a bust of Liberty wearing a triple-star ornamented cap and a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY over her shoulder. The Paquet-engraved reverse displays a small heraldic eagle with the tail skewed to the left. This design also has a die blunder in that the V in FIVE is actually an upside-down A. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. These five dollar patterns were struck on planchets with diameters corresponding to the eagle rather than the half eagle. This was apparently an anti-counterfeiting measure, according to USPatterns.com. The present Select example features orange-gold and sea-green iridescence over copper-brown surfaces. Superficial hairlines appear over each side.
