    1866 Washington Five Cents in Nickel
    Judd-470, GW-779, PR65 Cameo

    1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-470, Pollock-562, Baker-42, Musante GW-779, Low R.6, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. A bust of George Washington faces right on the obverse, the legend IN GOD WE TRUST above and the date below. A wreath of laurel on the reverse encloses a large broad numeral 5 with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. More than a dozen examples of this Washington nickel pattern are believed extant, though this is the first Judd-470 representative we have handled in more than three years. A hint of golden color complements lustrous nickel-gray surfaces. Pleasing contrasts exists between the fields and the devices.
    Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection, Part I (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 165.
