1868 Five Cents, Struck in Nickel
1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-623, Pollock-692, R.5, PR64 PCGS.
Ex: Simpson. The obverse depicts Liberty wearing a coronet
inscribed LIBERTY. Around, the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and
below, the date, with a narrow border. On the reverse, the
denomination 5 CENTS is enclosed within a laurel wreath, with the
motto IN GOD WE TRUST above, and a wide border. Struck in nickel
with a plain edge on a normal diameter planchet. Perhaps 40 to 50
of these are known per the USPatterns.com website. This light gray
Choice proof has wispy gold toning and trivial marks of no
consequence. PCGS has certified 22 examples including two with
Cameo contrast, graded PR65 Cameo and PR64 Cameo. This undesignated
piece is tied for the third finest certified. Population: 8 in 64,
0 finer (4/20).
