    1869 Five Cent in Copper
    Unique Judd-685, PR62 Brown
    Ex: Brenner-Brand-Farouk

    1869 5C Five Cents, Judd-685, Pollock-764, Unique, PR62 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse design is similar to the adopted three cent nickel but in larger format, and a star is added to Liberty's coronet. The reverse features a large Roman numeral V inside a laurel wreath. At the top of the wreath are the letters IN GOD WE TRUST on a scroll, and a cross rests squarely atop the design. Struck in copper with a plain edge. The reverse design was first used for Judd-529 and Judd-530 in 1866, assuming that all the various five cent patterns of the late 1860s were struck chronologically. A boldly detailed example with reflective fields beneath mottle iridescence. Violet and gold surfaces retain underlying orange mint color. A few minor hairlines and spots prevent a higher numeric grade. Judd-685 is believed to be unique, compared to about 100 known Judd-684 pieces in nickel.
