1881 Liberty Nickel Pattern, Choice Proof 64 NGC1881 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1671, Pollock-1872, R.6 PR64 NGC. 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 encircles the rim rather than the stars on the adopted design. On the reverse a very large V is surrounded by a large wreath with no statutory inscriptions on that side. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Approximately a dozen pieces are known of this pattern. Crisply defined, the bright, lustrous surfaces are overlaid with a finely speckled golden-rose toning that is most attractive.(#62067) (PCGS# 62067)
