    1860 Five Dollar on a Ten Dollar-Sized Planchet
    Judd-272, PR64 Brown, Gilt

    1860 P$5 Five Dollar, Judd-272, Pollock-320, Low R.6, PR64 Gilt NGC. The obverse introduces the right-facing bust of Liberty with three large stars on the cap, a familiar motif with the Standard Silver series, and 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. Struck in copper and then gilt with a reeded edge. These pieces were struck on ten dollar-sized planchets as an anti-counterfeiting measure. The reverse contains the well-known Mint blunder of the V in FIVE actually being an upside-down A. As a gilt coin this piece simulates the extremely rare gold strikings of this design. Moderate reflectivity is seen in the fields and each side shows a number of tiny planchet depressions, some of which faintly reveal the underlying brown of the coin. Sharply defined throughout.
