    1871 Five Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-1052, PR63

    1871 5C Five Cents, Judd-1052, Pollock-1186, Low R.7, PR63 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse repeats a familiar pattern with the devices closely resembling that on the adopted three cent nickel, and the reverse has a backward V in the center with CENTS below, surrounded by a laurel wreath. Struck on a regular-sized planchet and struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Although examples in copper are relatively accessible, fewer than a dozen are known in aluminum, one of which is struck on a wide planchet. A few scattered marks are minimal for the grade. This CAC-approved five cent pattern is entirely brilliant and expectedly razor-sharp.
