    1868 Five Cents Pattern in Nickel, Wide Border
    Judd-624, PR64

    1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-624, Pollock-693, Low R.6, PR64 PCGS. Struck on a broad, slightly oversized five cent planchet with an wide border around each side. The obverse is a larger variant of the three cent nickel design, while the reverse has 5 CENTS in the center surrounded by a laurel wreath. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. This obverse / reverse combination was struck in nickel, copper and aluminum. The nickel pieces are the most frequently encountered, and it is estimated that 2-3 dozen examples may exist of this wide-border variant. The fields are brightly reflective in spite of the moderate streaky reddish-gray patina seen over each side. Housed in a first-generation holder. (NGC ID# 29NF, PCGS# 60841)
