    1866 Shield Nickel in Copper
    Judd-490, PR65 Brown

    1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-490, Pollock-578, Low R.7, PR65 Brown NGC. Shield design obverse, similar to that adopted, but with a smaller motto and date divided at the base of the shield. Knobbed or "Dutch" 5 inside a laurel wreath on the reverse. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This popular pattern was also struck in nickel, but the copper variant is much scarcer. This piece displays deep, even blue-green patina with a hint of underlying red evident when examined with a loupe.
