    1866 Washington Five Cents in Bronze
    Judd-472, AU Details

    1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-472, Pollock-563, Low R.7 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. 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 bronze with a plain edge. This pattern was also struck in nickel, and is available on a regular basis in that metal; however, bronze/copper strikes are very rare. Cleaning has given this piece an unusual brightness with a significant layer of deep red and blue patina over each side.
