    1868 Five Cent Pattern in Nickel
    Judd-633, Brilliant PR66
    Cameo

    1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-633, Pollock-705, R.5, PR66Cameo NGC. This pattern for a five cent nickel is similar to the regular design for the three cent nickel as introduced in 1865, with the obverse similar to the three cent nickel obverse but larger, with a prominent star on Liberty's coronet. On the reverse, a laurel wreath is topped with a small Maltese cross. A ribbon with IN GOD WE TRUST wraps beneath the cross, and the whole ensemble surrounds a large V in the center, again paralleling the regular three cent issue. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. This is the High Date subvariety of this pattern, with the date equidistant between the denticles and bust truncation. Each side is brilliant and the fields are deeply mirrored with contrasting frost over the devices. Identifiable by a patch of planchet roughness next to the D in UNITED and a streak of light planchet granularity in the center of the reverse.
