    Judd-688, PR63+ Cameo

    1869 P5C Five Cents, Judd-688, Pollock-769, High R.7, PR63+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Struck from the regular dies for the Shield nickel in aluminum with a plain edge. From a Mint-issued 1869 aluminum proof set created especially for contemporary 19th century collectors, this Select Cameo proof has lovely light gray surfaces and sharp design motifs with excellent eye appeal, showing wonderful field-to-device contrast. PCGS has examined five of these, including three with the Cameo designation, and at least one resubmission that is counted twice (1/21).
