    1860 Five Dollar in Copper
    Judd-272, PR64+ Red and Brown
    Paquet-Designed Reverse

    1860 P$5 Five Dollar, Judd-272, Pollock-320, Low R.6, PR64+ Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. 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. Original red luster is rare on this design type. The obverse of this piece shows it in abundance, with an occasional smattering of blue around the margin. The reverse, however, is almost entirely covered in vibrant blue with just a faint outline of mint red still evident around the letters in the denomination. Nicely reflective. Seldom encountered finer than this.
