1866 Washington Five Cents in Nickel
1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-481, Pollock-571, Baker-44, Musante
GW-784, Low R.7, PR63 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A head of Washington
faces right on the obverse, with the date below and GOD AND OUR
COUNTRY around. The final 6 in the date is much larger than the
first 6 and is apparently recut at least once. The reverse has a
large 5 within a laurel wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
around. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. About a dozen of these
patterns exist in nickel, plus another half dozen in copper and/or
bronze. The silver-gray surfaces of this Select proof are lustrous
with just a few superficial hairlines. A touch of softness atop
Washington's head is the only bit of incompleteness.
