Heavily Circulated 1881 Liberty Nickel, Judd-1671

1881 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1671, Pollock-1872, High R.6 PR30 PCGS. An early prototype for the Liberty nickel that was adopted two years later. This version differs in several ways from the regular design. On the obverse UNITED STATES OF AMERICA circles the rim in place of the stars. On the reverse, a large V is surrounded by a wreath with no statutory inscriptions around the periphery. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Evenly worn with medium gray patina over most of each side and deeper golden color around the margins. We have to wonder why this coin shows 30 points of circulation. Was it carried as a pocket piece? Or, did it actually circulate for several years because of the public confusion over the No Cents debacle when this design was introduced in 1883? A curiosity for certain, and an affordable example of this rare, early prototype.(#62067) (PCGS# 62067)
