    1866 Shield Nickel in Copper
    Judd-495, PR64+ Brown

    1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-495, Pollock-582, High R.7, PR64+ Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse design features the familiar heraldic shield with arrows, cross, and laurel branches. The shield is low in the field and divides the date 18-66. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST is engraved in small letters above the shield. The reverse shows a short numeral 5, centered in a thick laurel wreath, with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Only four or five of these pieces are known. This pattern contains one of the most spectacular die punching errors. In the motto on the obverse, the initially punched T in TRUST is far to the right of the correct position. The fields are deeply mirrored and each side displays rich blue patina over subdued mint red.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29KW, PCGS# 60691)
