1872 Pattern Five Cents. Copper, plain edge. . Judd-1189. Pollock-1329. NGC graded Proof 66 Red & Brown. Here we present a wonderful and super rare shield nickel pattern, struck in copper with a plain edge from the regular dies in correct coin alignment. The Judd book lists it as a High R 7 with 4 to 6 pieces known. This specimen is beautifully struck, with every line in the shield and every leaf in the wreath clear and sharp. Similarly, on the reverse every star is fully struck up. The color is lovely with considerable mint red fading to violet brown iridescence over immaculate surfaces. Population 1, the only specimen graded by NGC and we note only a Proof-64 RB by PCGS, thus the finest graded by either servce. A superb pattern in every respect (PCGS # 61460) .
Estimated Value $11,000 - 12,000.

Realized $11,500
