    1866 Washington Five Cents in Nickel
    Judd-481, GW-784, PR63

    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.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29KL, PCGS# 60677)
