    1874 Shield Nickel in Copper
    Judd-1350, PR64 Brown

    1874 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-1350, Pollock-1494, R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular Shield nickel dies for the year. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Two or three examples are known in this metal, plus the same number in aluminum. Although often described as dies trials, they were manufactured for sale to a small group of well-connected insiders. This coin does not appear to match the example offered by Stack's in October 1997. It does match the 1979 Oscar J. Pearl coin with a diagnostic spot on the reverse denticles at 7:30. Copper-brown surfaces display considerable violet and maroon accents. Glossy and attractive.
    Ex: Oscar J. Pearl Collection (Bowers and Ruddy, 6/1979), lot 1373.
