    1868 Wide Border Five Cents in Nickel
    Judd-624, PR66 Cameo

    1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-624, Pollock-693, Low R.6, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Struck on a broad, slightly oversized five cent planchet with a 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. This is the finest example certified of this unusual wide-border pattern. The surfaces are bright and almost free from toning. Nicely mirrored fields provide good background for the thickly frosted devices. Slightly toned around the margins.
