    Rare 1866 Pattern Shield Nickel in Copper, Judd-495

    1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-495, Pollock-582, High R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. A Shield design on the obverse is quite similar to the regularly issued design, although the shield is lower in the field, with the ball at the bottom dividing the date. At the top of the obverse, IN GOD WE TRUST is in very small letters. The reverse has a short 5 inside a wreath consisting of two laurel branches tied at the bottom by a ribbon with bow. Outside the wreath, the statutory legend begins at 8 o'clock and ends at 4 o'clock. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This is a lovely near-Gem with moderately mirrored fields and a deep golden-brown color overall.
