1866 Washington Five Cents in Nickel
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.
