    Gem Proof 'Holey' 1884 Five Cent Pattern
    Judd-1724 With Octagonal Opening

    1884 5C Five Cents, Judd-1724, Pollock-1934, Low R.6, PR65 PCGS. CAC. The Eastman Johnson "holey five cent" design. The obverse shows FIVE above and CENTS below a roughly octagonal opening in the planchet, with shields on either side. The reverse shows UNITED STATES OF AMERICA at the outer rim, with an inner circle of 13 stars and date 1884 below. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. A light green-gold overtone gives this still-flashy Gem specimen a distinctive appearance. A great representative of a pattern that was perhaps too innovative for its own good. Population: 8 in 65, 11 finer (11/11).
