    1866 Shield Nickel in Copper
    Judd-510, PR64+ Red and Brown

    1866 5C Five Cents, Judd-510, Pollock-594, R.8, PR64+ Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The standard Shield nickel design for the year with a Rays reverse. Struck in copper with a plain edge. We last handled this pattern in 2009, when it was encapsulated in a PCGS holder noting its weight at 60.34 grains, too heavy to be struck on an Indian Head cent planchet. The holder also noted its composition as an alloy of 99.3% copper and 0.7% aluminum. Both sides display orange and rose-red color when angled beneath a light. A sharply struck specimen and an extremely rare dies trial piece. Reportedly, two Judd-510 representatives exist: one with a center dot, and one without a center dot (this piece).
    Ex: Baltimore Signature (Heritage, 3/2009), lot 2473.
