    1870 Shield Nickel in Copper
    Judd-805, PR63 Brown

    1870 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-805, Pollock-893, High R.7, PR63 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular dies for the year. Struck in copper with a plain edge. USPatterns.com estimates fewer than a half dozen examples known and writes that the reverse die "is the same overpolished die, used to strike the 1865 dated J418/P490." Peach-orange color surrounds the devices, while the exposed areas feature a blend of violet and golden-brown patina with olive and blue accents. Phenomenal eye appeal.
