    1866 Washington Five Cents in Copper
    Judd-468, PR64+ Brown

    1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-468, Pollock-561, R.8, PR64+ Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. A patriotic bust of Washington faces left on the obverse, with the date below and IN GOD WE TRUST above. The reverse features a wreath with a large fancy 5 inside. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is centered across the upper border. LIBERTY and CENTS do not appear on the pattern. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Only a half-dozen or so of this design were struck, in both copper and bronze combined. According to our records, the last copper striking (a PR60) was sold by Heritage in 2013. This piece retains significant mint red on each side with lavender interspersed. Fully struck throughout. A rare opportunity.
