    1873 Shield Nickel in Aluminum
    Judd-1265, PR65 Cameo
    Two Examples Traced

    1873 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-1265, Pollock-1407, R.8, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The dies are the regular-issue dies used to produce Shield nickels. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. reports "fewer than a half dozen known." However, there is only one other example of Judd-1265 that we can pinpoint -- a PR64 PCGS representative that appeared as lot 2037 in Bowers and Merena's March 1996 sale of the Thomas H. Sebring Collection. That PR64 representative was formerly part of the J.E. Drew and Jeff Notrica collections. Andrew Pollock notes that there was a Judd-1265 in the King Farouk Palace Collections sale, but that piece was not plated.

    This PR64 Cameo representative is brilliant with thickly frosted devices and profoundly mirrored fields. There are a few lint marks (as made) and trivial hairlines on each side, but visual and technical quality are both excellent for the grade.
    Ex: Baltimore Auction (Stack's Bowers, 3/2012, as PR64 Cameo NGC), lot 4215.
