Description & Analysis

Judd-409a, Pollock-479, High R.7.

Design. Both obverse and reverse are the regular two cent dies of the year. The obverse is the Fancy 5 variety. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary. A rare and popular issue that began appearing in auction catalogs as early as 1869 (Mason, 10/1869, lot 516). Nickel is an extremely hard metal, making it almost impossible to strike good-quality coins with the technology available in early 1865. The difficulties of the striking process account for the unfinished, granular areas on the surfaces of all examples seen.
