Gem Proof Judd-495 Copper
1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-495, Pollock-582, High R.7, PR65
Brown PCGS. CAC. 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 plain 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. Toned
chocolate-brown with olive, aqua and rose undertones. Exactingly
struck and undisturbed with no evidence of carbon. The single
finest of only five pieces certified by either major service.
Encapsulated in an old green label holder.
