    1868 Five Cents Pattern in Copper
    Judd-627, PR64 Brown

    1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-627, Pollock-696, Low R.7, PR64 Brown NGC. The obverse resembles the adopted three cent nickel design, while the reverse has a large 5 and small CENTS surrounded by an open wreath. Struck in copper with a plain edge. These wide-planchet patterns were struck in nickel, copper (regular size), copper (wide planchet, as seen here), and aluminum (regular and oversized planchets). Reeded edge variants were also produced. Only a half-dozen of these oversized planchet pieces in copper are believed known. The surfaces have evenly mellowed with just the slightest reflectivity still evident in the obverse fields.
