    1868 Five Cent Pattern in Copper
    Judd-628, PR62 Brown
    Ex: Ruby

    1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-628, Pollock-697, High R.7, PR62 Brown PCGS. A bust of Liberty faces left on the obverse with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the border and the date 1868 below. Liberty's portrait is similar to that used on the regular issue three cent nickel of 1865-1889. The reverse depicts the denomination 5 CENTS in the center of a laurel wreath. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST is at the top. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Fewer than a half-dozen examples are believed known today. This interesting pattern features broad borders on both sides. A seemingly original example, both sides are toned in medium brown patina with brighter, multicolored undertones. An abrasion in the right reverse field is noted as a pedigree marker.
    Ex: Dr. Charles L. Ruby Collection I (Superior, 2/1974), lot 1958; ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2001), lot 8352.
