    1866 Shield Nickel in Copper or Bronze
    Judd-499, PR65

    1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-499, Pollock-584, High R.7, PR65 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Shield nickel pattern with the motto in small letters in the field above the cross of Calatrava, the date is also separated by the ball at the bottom. The reverse shows the regular stars and rays design. Struck in copper or bronze with a plain edge. Fewer than a dozen examples are believed known of this pattern in copper/bronze. The fields are bright and reflective which gives the rich, multicolored toning enhanced eye appeal. This rare pattern also displays the tentative punching of the final T in TRUST far to the right of its final position with the second leaf on the right pointing to the remnant of the letter.
    Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2007), lot 2179.
