    1867 Shield Nickel in Copper, Judd-573, Scarcer Variant
    PR64 Brown

    1867 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-573, Pollock-649, 650, Low R.6, PR64 Brown PCGS. Similar to the regular issue 1867 No Rays nickel, but struck in copper (instead of copper-nickel) with a plain edge. Judd-573 has two variants, which slightly differ in the arrangement of the stars on the reverse. This is the scarcer of the two with the reverse of 1866 that shows the stars above the word CENTS pointing between the E and N and between the T and S. It also shows two prominent center dots. This reverse was used on many 1866 nickel patterns including Judd-507 through Judd-509. This reverse was also used to strike some regular 1867 proofs in nickel. While labeled as a Brown coin, the surfaces are evenly mellowed with significant underlying mint red still in evidence. Fully struck with just the slightest specks of carbon evident with a magnifier.
    (PCGS# 60783)
