    1869 Five Cent Pattern in Nickel
    Judd-684, PR63

    1869 5C Five Cent, Judd-684, Pollock-763, R.5, PR63 NGC. Similar to the contemporary three cent nickel, but the Roman numeral V replaces the Roman III, and a Maltese cross and a scroll bearing the motto close the upper wreath on the reverse. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. These five cent patterns were issued in three-coin sets accompanying the diminutive cent pattern with a similar obverse design, Judd-666, and the similarly designed three cent piece, Judd-676. This five cent design is also known in copper, but is much scarcer. The nickel-gray surfaces are essentially untoned and the fields display brightly reflective mirroring.
    From The Collection of William Rau.
