    1872 Shield Nickel in Copper
    Judd-1189, PR66+ Red and Brown
    Only Two or Three Pieces Known

    1872 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-1189, Pollock-1329, R.7, PR66+ Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular Shield nickel design for the year. Struck in copper with a plain edge. USPatterns.com suggests only two or three examples were produced in this metal and a similar quantity in aluminum. Rather than to test the dies, they were manufactured for and sold to insiders and collectors. Today, these patterns trade infrequently and are generally unseen. Considerable red color remains throughout this Premium Gem. The surfaces have only mellowed slightly. They feature iridescent accents of blue, violet, green, and gold. Eye appeal is terrific.
    Ex: Pre-Long Beach Sale (Goldberg Auctions, 5/2005), lot 717.
