    Eastman Johnson's Perforated 1884 Five Cent Pattern
    Judd-1724, PR66 Cameo

    1884 5C Five Cents, Judd-1724, Pollock-1934, Low R.6, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Eastman Johnson's five-cent pattern struck with an eight-sided scalloped hole in the center. The obverse has the date and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the outside with 13 stars encircling the center. The reverse simply states FIVE CENTS and has two shields. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The perforated center of these patterns appear to have been hand cut as they vary in size. It is estimated that approximately two dozen of these pieces are extant. This is a spectacular example. The fields are bright and deeply mirrored, especially so for a nickel product. The devices display light but noticeable frost that gives the coin its cameo contrast. Just the slightest overlay of golden toning is present on each side.
