    1865 With Motto Five Dollar in Copper
    Judd-446, PR67 Brown

    1865 $5 Five Dollar, Judd-446, Pollock-518, High R.6, PR67 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse die is the regular design for the year. The reverse is the design adopted in 1866, with the scroll over the eagle's head and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST added. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This transitional dies trial may have been struck in 1865, but it also may have been struck later with other With Motto restrikes. As pointed out on the website: "The first definite appearance of this design was in the April 1870 auction by John Haseltine of coins from the Idler collection." This is a spectacularly toned copper pattern. The obverse is almost completely deep blue, while the reverse shows an almost 50-50 split between deep blue and cherry-red coloration.
