    1867 Shield Nickel in Copper
    Judd-573, Pollock-649, Reverse of 1866
    MS63 Brown

    1867 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-573, Pollock-649, Low R.6, MS63 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. Pollock-649 shows the star above CENTS pointing between the E and N and between the T and S; while on Pollock-650 the stars above CENTS point to the E and T in CENTS. This is the Reverse of 1866 and the scarcer of the two variants. Of special note, this is one of the few patterns struck in business strike format. Nevertheless, the fields are bright and semiprooflike with rich sea-green and reddish-brown toning over each side and a number of carbon spots scattered about.
