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

    1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-633, Pollock-705, R.5, PR66 Cameo 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. The devices are sharply struck for a nickel pattern, and the brilliant surfaces show strong contrast between the fields and devices. (NGC ID# 29NN, PCGS# 860851)
