    Judd-1051, PR66 Red and Brown

    1871 5C Five Cents, Judd-1051, Pollock-1185, R.5, PR66 Red and Brown NGC. The obverse is similar to the issued three cent nickel, although larger in scale. The reverse features a bushy wreath with V above CENTS. CENTS is curved, and the Roman numeral V is shaded on the right. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This interesting design was struck in nickel, copper, and aluminum. The surfaces are mostly cherry-red with slight mellowing, particularly around the obverse perimeter. The reverse fields appear more reflective than those on the obverse.
