    1866 Five Cent Pattern in Copper
    Judd-490, PR64 Red and Brown

    1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-490, Pollock-578, Low R.7, PR64 Red and Brown NGC. Ex: Exemplar Collection. Five cent pattern with an obverse similar to the adopted Shield nickel design, but the ball at the bottom of the shield divides the date. The reverse features a "Dutch" numeral 5 inside a laurel wreath. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This scarce pattern was also struck in nickel, but the copper variant is much more challenging. The fields display remarkable depth of mirroring with each side covered in streaks of multicolored iridescence.
