    Finest Certified 1866 Washington
    Five Cent Pattern Struck in Copper
    Judd-465, PR64 Red and Brown

    1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-465, Pollock-559, R.8, PR64 Red and Brown NGC.
    Design.
    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.

    Commentary.
    A popular design, with companion patterns in nickel and bronze. This issue is exceedingly rare in copper. A search of auction records reveals that Heritage has not auctioned an example of Judd-465 in the last decade. This particular coin was auctioned in a Stack's sale in 1992, where the catalogers noted, "An ultra-rare pattern with no traceable auction records in this century."

    Physical Description.
    Deeply mirrored fields show under lovely lilac toning with most of the original red luster still present. Strongly impressed devices, with crisp detail in all areas. A small, round dot accompanies the usual center dot, and can be used as a pedigree marker. The sole example certified at NGC, while PCGS has graded a single PR63 Brown piece (11/08).

    Provenance.
    Ex: The Winter Collection (Stack's, 1/1992), lot 623, which realized $18,700.
    From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (NGC ID# 29KA, PCGS# 70660)
