    1867 Five Cent Muling in Nickel
    Judd-575, PR45

    1867 5C Five Cents, Judd-575, Pollock-631, Unique, PR45 PCGS. The obverse is a larger adaptation of the three cent nickel design, while the reverse is the No Rays Shield nickel design. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The reverse die used that of 1866, as indicated by the star above CENTS that points between the E and N and another that points between the T and S. Some five cent patterns produced around this time were apparently produced outside the Mint, and such pieces are generally attributed to Joseph Mickley. However, this piece is without suspicion because of the Reverse of 1866 that was used. This particular muling is unique. Curiously, it either escaped into circulation or was carried for years by its owner as a pocket piece. The surfaces are nickel-gray with numerous abrasions present and no trace of the original proof fields remains. An important opportunity for the pattern specialist.
