Description

    Interesting 1896 Five Cent Pattern, Judd-1771, PR65 1896 5C Five Cents, Judd-1771, Pollock-1986, Low R.6, PR65 PCGS. The obverse depicts a shield with 13 stripes and a scroll inscribed LIBERTY that passes in front. Behind are two crossed poles, one bearing an eagle, the other a liberty cap. E PLURIBUS UNUM is above, 1896 is below. The reverse shows 5 CENTS within a curved olive sprig with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. The border is beaded on both sides. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Allegedly these pieces are struck in pure nickel, but pure nickel is a difficult metal to strike coins from. Pieces are also known from this design struck in standard coin nickel and at least six variants of German silver. Moderately reflective, the striking details are sharply defined and there is no evidence of die breakage--two attributes one would look for on a pure nickel coin. Untoned with problem-free surfaces. (NGC ID# 2AMC, PCGS# 62225)
