    1860 Five Dollar in Copper
    Struck on a Ten Dollar-Sized Planchet
    Judd-272, Thin Planchet, PR63 Brown

    1860 P$5 Five Dollar, Judd-272, Pollock-320, Low R.6, PR63 Brown PCGS. The obverse introduces the right-facing bust of Liberty with three large stars on the cap, a familiar motif within the Standard Silver series and first used on Judd-271 and Judd-272. The date is noticeably small. The reverse features a small eagle with a curved shield, clutching the banner bearing E PLURIBUS UNUM in its beak along with the usual olive branch and arrows in its claws. Struck in copper with a reeded edge and struck on an eagle-sized planchet as an anti-counterfeiting measure. Produced on thick and thin planchets, this is a thin-planchet variant. The surfaces are pleasing, toned in deeper autumn leaves coloration. Fully struck.
    From The Collection of William Rau.
