    Description

    Superior Quality 1866 Washington Head Five Cent Pattern, Judd-461

    1866 Nickel, Judd-461, Pollock-535, R.6, PR 66 NGC. A bust of George Washington is facing right on the obverse, the legend surrounds him, and the date is below. The reverse features the denomination 5 CENTS within a laurel wreath with IN GOD WE TRUST above. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The bright, highly reflective luster is essentially untoned and there is a noticeable contrast between the fields and devices. An exceptionally sharp example.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29EL, PCGS# 60461)
