1866 Pattern $5, Judd-546, Pollock-610 High R.7 Proof 64 Brown PCGS
Struck from the regular dies of the half eagle, with the new Motto above the eagle. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. An extremely rare coin in any grade, there are perhaps four or five known in all between both services. The color is a blend of chocolate brown with tinges of blue and mint color as well. Fully and perfectly struck, with bold curls on Liberty, the stars surrounding and all of the eagle's feathers and claws. No spots or carbon issues whatsoever, and the surfaces are outstanding in terms of contact. For identification the surfaces are virtually perfect in terms of contact, with a strong loupe needed to see a minute tick of contact left of star eight in the field above Liberty's head, no other nicks or lintmarks are seen. Population: 1 in 64, none finer. (PCGS 60744)
