1871 Five Cent Pattern in Nickel
1871 5C Five Cents, Judd-1050, Pollock-1184, Low R.6, PR66 Cameo
PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse bears a portrait of Liberty
similar to that used on the adopted three cent nickel. The date is
below and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is above the central device. The
reverse depicts a reversed Roman numeral V and the word CENTS
within a wreath. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The design was
also struck in copper (Judd-1051) and aluminum (Judd-1052). Sharply
detailed in most areas, this coin shows a touch of the usual
softness on Liberty's hair. The frosty devices contrast boldly with
the reflective fields. The surfaces are free of post-strike
distractions, but a long planchet fissure is evident across
Liberty's cheek. Population: 2 in 66 Cameo, 0 finer (4/20).
