    1866 Washington Head Bronze Five Cent
    Judd-472, PR65 Red and Brown

    1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-472, Baker-42B, Pollock-563, Musante GW-779, Low R.7, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. A portrait 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 broad, short numeral 5 with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. Struck in bronze with a plain edge. Nickel examples of this pattern are fairly available, but the bronze pieces are seldom seen. This example boasts excellent original color and abundant eye appeal. Considerable mint red remains on the reverse. A straight die line runs from the left topmost laurel leaf through the bottom of the last S and to the dentils. Population: 2 in 65 Red and Brown, 0 finer (8/20).
