    1866 Shield Nickel Pattern
    Judd-489, With 'Dutch' 5, PR64

    1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-489, Pollock-577, Low R.6, PR64 PCGS. CAC. The obverse has a shield design similar to that adopted for the regular issue Shield nickel, except that the motto IN GOD WE TRUST is expressed in smaller letters and the date is divided by the ball at the base of the shield. On the reverse, the "Dutch" 5 is surrounded by a laurel wreath, with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the rim. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. This popular pattern shows a die cutting error, the motto at the top of the obverse having been started way too far right and the remnant of the final T in TRUST still visible in the field. The surfaces are brilliant and nicely reflective, except in places on the reverse where shallow planchet flaking interrupts the mirroring.
    From The Teich Family Collection. (NGC ID# 29KT, PCGS# 60685)
