    1867 Longacre Five Cent Pattern in Aluminum
    Judd-561, PR63 Cameo

    1867 5C Five Cents, Judd-561, Pollock-622, R.5, PR63 Cameo PCGS. The central obverse device is a head of Liberty facing left, wearing a headdress of four large feathers and a ribbon with the inscription UNION AND LIBERTY. Resting in the hair in front of the ribbon are four large stars. The Chief Engraver's name LONGACRE F. is stylishly displayed at the truncation of the neck. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around, with the date in the exergue. The reverse features a Roman numeral V over an ornate shield, with IN GOD WE TRUST at the top. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. This design was struck in both aluminum and copper, reeded and plain edge. According to J. Colvin Randall there were approximately 100 examples struck of the plain edge aluminum variant. This is a bright, noticeably contrasted example with no oxidation present, just a few contact marks that account for the grade. (Variety PCGS# 860771, Base PCGS# 60771)
