    1868 Shield Nickel Struck in Aluminum

    1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-636, Pollock-708, Low R.7, AU55 NGC. This die trials piece uses regular issue dies and has the usual plain edge, but it is struck in aluminum rather than the usual nickel alloy. A nicely struck specimen with some remaining flash in protected areas. A few scattered tiny marks and slight highpoint friction point to brief circulation before its retrieval by a forward-thinking individual. Very rare, a perusal of Heritage auction records does not produce a prior appearance. As of (9/04), the only example of Judd-636 certified by NGC.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29NR, PCGS# 60854)
