    1871 Shield Nickel in Copper
    Judd-1056, PR66+ Red and Brown

    1871 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-1056, Pollock-1191, High R.7, PR66+ Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. A few complete 1871 proof sets were struck in copper, from the cent to twenty dollar. The plain edge Judd-1056 was an entry in those sets. Judd-1056 is very rare. The (9/20) PCGS Population and NGC Census each show three examples, and it is likely that one or more of those pieces have been broken out of their holders over the past 35 years. This crisply struck Premium Gem is brick-red with a blush of lilac across both centers. We report only delicate contact on the large 5, along with a narrow diagonal toning streak on the lower right obverse. Population: 1 in 66 (1 in 66+) Red and Brown, 0 finer (9/20).
