    1866 Shield Nickel With 'Dutch 5'
    Judd-489, PR65 Cameo

    1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-489, Pollock-577, Low R.6, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. A Shield design on the obverse is similar to the regularly issued design, although the shield is lower in the field, with the ball at the bottom dividing the date. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. At the top of the obverse, IN GOD WE TRUST is in very small letters. The reverse has a fancy 5 inside a wreath that consists of two laurel branches tied at the bottom by a ribbon with a bow. Dr. Judd called the large 5 on the reverse a "Dutch 5." Outside the wreath, the statutory legend begins at 8 o'clock and ends at 4 o'clock. The surfaces are brilliant with deeply reflective fields. The devices display significant mint frost that yields the mentioned cameo effect.
    Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection, Part I (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 168.
