1885 5C Five Cents, Judd-1742, Pollock-1954, High R.6
1885 5C Five Cents, Judd-1742, Pollock-1954, High R.6, PR65 NGC. A ring-shaped pattern that has thirteen stars, the date, and the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA on the obverse. The upper reverse has the legend FIVE CENTS with a shield sandwiched between two laurel leaves in the lower reverse. Struck in silver with a plain edge. Allegedly struck in both thick and thin planchets, but we do not have any further information and do not know which variant this is. Bright and flashy, the fields are deeply mirrored on each side. One of the finest examples known of this pattern. (#62184)
