    1867 Longacre-Designed Nickel in Aluminum
    Judd-561, PR65

    1867 5C Five Cents, Judd-561, Pollock-622, R.5, PR65 NGC. 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. Possibly as many as 100 of these patterns were struck according to J. Colvin Randall. Far fewer exist today, and this is one of the finest. The surfaces are bright with deeply reflective fields and significantly frosted devices.
