    1865 Three Cent Nickel in Copper
    Judd-413, PR65+ Red and Brown

    1865 3C Three Cents, Judd-413, Pollock-Unlisted, R.5, PR65+ Red and Brown PCGS.
    Ex: Simpson. Struck from regular issue dies with a plain edge, but in copper. A majority of Judd-413 patterns are from the same obverse die used to strike regular proof 1865 three cent nickel pieces, identified by prominent repunching on the date (as seen here). A second variety is known, showing no repunching on the date. Each side of this first-year pattern is distinctively toned. The obverse is lighter in hue with a yellow center that is surrounded by light blue at the margin. The reverse is deeply toned in magnificent cobalt-blue with significant traces of underlying cherry-red.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29J2, PCGS# 70594)
