    Rare Reeded Edge Variant

    1867 5C Five Cents, Judd-562, Pollock-623, Low R.7, PR61 NGC. This unusual and popular pattern shows a bust of Liberty on the obverse facing left, wearing a headdress with four feathers and four stars, a ribbon crosses the hair and is inscribed UNION & LIBERTY. The engraver's signature LONGACRE F. is present below the truncation. A large V is placed over an ornate shield on the reverse. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST is above. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. About a dozen examples are known of this aluminum pattern. By contrast, about 100 pieces are known with a plain edge.
