    1867 Five Cent in Copper, PR63 Brown
    Longacre 'Feathered Headdress' Design

    1867 5C Five Cents, Judd-563, Pollock-624, High R.7, PR63 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This is the interesting Feathered Headdress obverse design that James B. Longacre developed (Judd-561 through 564 in aluminum and copper with plain and reeded edges). Three long feathers and one short one arc gracefully back over Liberty's head. Four large stars, two leaves, and a ribbon inscribed UNION & LIBERTY complete the headdress. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the date are at the rim. The reverse features an ornamental shield rather reminiscent of the then-current Shield nickel circulation design, with a large V superimposed and IN GOD WE TRUST at the top edge. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Perhaps a half-dozen are known today, although the aluminum version of these dies was struck to the extent of 100 pieces, per
