1867 Five Cent Pattern in Aluminum
1867 5C Five Cents, Judd-561, Pollock-622, R.5, PR64+ PCGS.
Ex: Simpson. 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
is one of the more plentiful aluminum patterns with a production
that may have reached 100 pieces. This pleasing Choice proof has
blue-gray surfaces with fully mirrored fields around sharply
defined devices. PCGS has certified 40 of these in all grades.
Population: 16 in 64 (1 in 64+), 3 finer (4/20).
