    1871 Five Cent in Copper
    Judd-1054, PR63 Brown

    1871 5C Five Cents, Judd-1054, Pollock-1189, High R.6, PR63 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Longacre's three cent nickel Liberty motif as adapted for the nickel, although the arrangement of the denomination and wreath is more reminiscent of the two cent piece. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This five cent type is relatively accessible and represents a great opportunity for pedigree collectors to pick up a Bob Simpson pattern at an affordable price. Original mint red color appears around the devices. Both sides are largely deep brown and toned in shades of blue, green, violet and magenta. A small lint mark occurs southwest of the chin. Carbon and hairlines are moderate.
