    1870 Shield Nickel in Copper
    Judd-805, PR67 Brown

    1870 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-805, Pollock-893, High R.7, PR67 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Each side features the regular 1870 Shield nickel design. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Mint officials would have produced these off-metal products as numismatic delicacies for sale to collectors rather than as dies trials. According to USPatterns.com, fewer than a half dozen examples of Judd-805 are known. Other small quantities exist in aluminum (Judd-806), nickel (Judd-807, though these may be off-metal errors), and possibly steel (Judd-808). A melange of pastel hues covers the obverse in shades of gold, orange, yellow, rose, violet, and blue, while the reverse is mostly bluish-green with rose and gold accents. The legends on that side show extensive evidence of die polishing.
