    1869 Aluminum Nickel Pattern
    Judd-688, PR67 Cameo, Regular Dies Strike
    Ex: Newman

    1869 5C Five Cents, Judd-688, Pollock-769, High R.7, PR67 Cameo NGC. CAC. The regular Shield nickel design without rays. Magnification reveals nearly imperceptible date repunching, especially inside the tops of 869. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Heavy reverse die polishing matches the reverse of the 1865 Judd-418 from the Newman Collection. Only five pieces are certified, and the Newman specimen is the finest of those. It is likely that only four or five pieces exist.

    This boldly defined Superb Gem is fully brilliant with white surfaces characteristic of the aluminum composition. The fields are deeply mirrored around lustrous devices, resulting in a distinct cameo appearance.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
