    Admirable 1865 Shield Nickel Pattern, No Rays
    Judd-418, Circa 1869 Restrike, PR66

    1865 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-418, Pollock-490, High R.6, PR66 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This pattern mule pairs a regular issue 1865 Shield nickel obverse with a regular issue No Rays reverse die, Fletcher Hub IIc, first used to strike business strike 1869 Shield nickels. From this evidence, one can safely conclude that the present pattern was struck in 1869 or later, despite its 1865 date. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The obverse shows many die cracks, die lines, striations, and a separated right-inside berry on the wreath; the reverse die has been overpolished, with lost detail in the letters D, S, and A in UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. This lovely Premium Gem proof boasts admirable gold, heather, saffron, and lilac patina on each side, with little evidence of contact and a bold strike. Population: 4 in 66, 0 finer (7/10).
    From The Bob Simpson Collection. (NGC ID# 29J8, PCGS# 60600)
