This is one of the famous Blind Man's nickel patterns. It has 5 equally spaced ridges on the edge.
The following are confirmed:
1) Elder 10/1908 lot 229?, Mitchelson-Connecticut State Library
2) Numismatics Ltd 8/74, Bass-HWBRF, Heritage 8/14 - NGC66
3) Rothchild-Stacks 10/03, gem proof
4) Novoselsky, B/M 10/00, Wilcox - PCGS67
5) An example graded PCGS63
Pollock lists additional/confused pedigrees which are probably among the last 2. Brand's was purchased in Elder's 2/4/09 sale and entered into his journal as #47978. NGC shows 2 in NGC65 grade which, if not the same as #3 and/or #5 would represent a 6th example.
