1865 Pattern Five Cents. Nickel, plain edge. . High Rarity 6. PCGS graded Proof 64. A hint of light tone on both sides. A rare and popular Pattern. A world of opportunity opens for the collector here. Why settle for a Proof 1866 With Rays Shield Nickel, rare as these are, desirable to an extreme, when it is easy to go one better and pick up this truly handsome 1865 Pattern with the identical design as adopted in 1866. Admittedly, this coin has hypnotized us at first glance, which is why we, as your hosts of the sale, are undertaking to grab you attention. Bidders would be wrong to think that is the only reason, however; rather because this "transitional" Pattern has such historical connections. Designs by James Barton Longacre, chief engraver at the Mint from 1844 to 1869. Pop 8; 1 finer in 66. (PCGS # 60598) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 5,000.
