    1868 Five Cents in Copper
    Judd-632, PR65 Brown

    1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-632, Pollock-702, High R.7, PR65 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This rare pattern was an attempt to unify the designs of the two nickel alloy denominations. The obverse bears a strong resemblance to the three cent nickel, except in larger format. The reverse features a large Roman V within a wreath, similar to the later Liberty nickel, but the wreath is larger and there are no peripheral legends. A six-pointed star and scrollwork tops the wreath. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Today at least a half dozen examples are known. This is a highly attractive piece whose fields are bright and reflective and serve to enhance the light blue and lilac-brown patina seen over each side.
