    1867 Five Cent in Copper
    Judd-571, PR65 Brown
    Ex: Bass

    1867 5C Five Cents, Judd-571, Pollock-639, Low R.7, PR65 Brown PCGS. Ex: Bass-Simpson. The obverse is modeled after the regular issue three cent nickel and features a bust of Liberty facing left, wearing a coronet, surrounded by the legend and date. On the reverse the denomination is placed within a laurel wreath that is positioned close to the edge, with a tiny IN GOD WE TRUST above. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Variants exist with the 7 away from and close to Liberty's curl (Pollock-639 and -640, respectively). Three examples of each type are known in copper. Magenta and ice-blue accents complement flashy copper-brown surfaces. A gorgeous and absolutely rare five cent pattern with a great pedigree.
