    1896 Five Cent in Nickel
    Judd-1771, Gem Proof
    Lightly Toned, Bold Strike

    1896 5C Five Cent, Judd-1771, Pollock-1986, Low R.6, PR65 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Charles Barber's design, which would have replaced his own Liberty nickel, features a shield at the central obverse with LIBERTY incused. Crossed poles behind support a Liberty cap and a tiny eagle. E PLURIBUS UNUM is at the top rim, with stars seven left, six right. On the reverse, a large 5 commands the center with CENTS below, an open olive sprig surrounding and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA at the rim. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The present well-struck Gem displays light tan toning across the scroll and the lower half of the shield. The reverse also displays glimpses of wheat-brown patina. A small flan flaw is east of the top of the large 5, and a fleck is below the M in UNUM. Population: 8 in 65, 3 finer (9/20).
