1866 Washington Five Cents in Copper
1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-465, Pollock-559, Baker-41A, Musante
GW-782, R.8, PR63+ Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse
features the familiar bust of Washington facing right, with IN GOD
WE TRUST above and the date below. The reverse displays a "crooked"
or "Dutch" style 5, centered in a laurel wreath, with UNITED STATES
OF AMERICA around. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This
so-called pattern was privately struck from U.S. Mint dies likely
procured by Philadelphia coin dealer John W. Haseltine. According
to Saul Teichman, about a half dozen pieces are known in copper
and/or bronze. This Select Uncirculated proof is mainly olive and
golden-brown, but both sides feature iridescent steel-blue accents.
Fully struck throughout.
