    1868 Five Cent Pattern, Struck in Nickel
    Judd-630, PR66 Cameo

    The Only PCGS Cameo Proof

    1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-630, Pollock-700, High R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse displays a Liberty head facing left, similar to the design on the regular-issue three cent piece, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and the date 1868 below. The design is similar to other patterns of the same date, but this variant has no star on Liberty's coronet. The reverse exhibits a large V on an ornate shield, with IN GOD WE TRUST above. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Just over a half dozen pieces are known. This is a lovely Premium Gem Cameo proof, showing hints of gold toning on brilliant nickel-gray surfaces with excellent contrast between the mirrored fields and satin devices. PCGS has certified five submissions of Judd-630, including this piece, numerically the finest and the only Cameo proof (4/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 534920)
