    1868 Five Cent Pattern in Copper
    Judd-634, PR63 Red and Brown

    1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-634, Pollock-706, High R.7, PR63 Red and Brown NGC. Ex: Exemplar Collection. The obverse design is that of the three cent nickel, as adopted, but on a larger planchet, with minor design modifications appropriate to the larger diameter. The reverse features a Roman numeral V in the center, with a wreath encircling, scroll with IN GOD WE TRUST and Maltese cross above. Struck in copper with a plain edge. All the known copper examples are of the high date variety, unlike the nickel strikings that come in both high and low date variants. The fields are remarkably bright and mirror-like, serving to enhance the rich brown and blue patina on each side. A few shallow pinscratches are randomly placed and are well-concealed by the color.
