    1866 Washington Five Cents in Nickel
    Judd-461, PR65 Cameo

    1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-461, Pollock-535, R.5, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A bust of George Washington faces right on the obverse, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA surrounds, and the date is below. The reverse features the denomination 5 CENTS within a laurel wreath with IN GOD WE TRUST above. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Washington patterns were a popular Mint product in the mid-1860s. This is one of the more available variants, with perhaps as many as three dozen known survivors in nickel. This is a golden-toned Gem whose mirrored fields are deeply reflective. The devices are thickly frosted, even through the toning, giving the piece noticeable cameo contrast.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29K7, PCGS# 860656)
