1868 Five Cent Pattern, Struck in Nickel
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).
