    Splendid Multicolor Patina

    1882 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-1694, Pollock-1896, Low R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson.

This intricately impressed high-grade specimen has a mostly peach-gold obverse. The reverse exhibits about equal portions of powder-blue and orange-red toning. The only reportable imperfections are a fleck within the horizontal shield lines, and a tick on the reverse rim at 2 o'clock. Population: 2 in 66 Red and Brown, 0 finer (9/20).
