    1866 Washington Five Cents in Nickel
    Judd-467, PR64+

    1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-467, Pollock-560, High R.7, PR64+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Bust of George Washington facing right, with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST above and 1866 below. On the reverse, a tall 5 is centered in a laurel wreath, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA at the margins. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Only three or four examples are believed extant in nickel. This obverse / reverse combination was also struck in copper and about a half-dozen are known in that metal. The fields are moderately reflective and the piece's natural nickel-gray surfaces have taken on a slight hint of rose and lilac patina over each side. Porosity is noted on the neck and jawline of Washington. Remarkably well struck for a nickel product.
