    1866 Washington Five Cents in Copper
    Judd-471, PR64 Brown

    1866 5C Washington Five Cents, Judd-471, Pollock-563, R.8, PR64 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A bust of George Washington faces right, with the date below in minute digits, and IN GOD WE TRUST above in much larger letters. The reverse features a short 5 within a wreath, which has unusually broad leaf clusters. The 5 of the denomination has a repunched upright. No CENTS is present, consistent with the three cent nickel introduced the year before. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This popular pattern was also struck in nickel. A dozen or fewer copper pieces are believed known with a similar number extant in nickel. The surfaces are evenly mellowed to an even brown with occasional dab of blue interspersed, except for a curious streak of bright yellow through TRUS on the upper obverse. Kept out of the Gem category by the presence of a carbon spot in the center of the obverse.
