Description

1882 Liberty Head Nickel Pattern
Judd-1684, Proof

1882 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1684, Pollock-1886, Low R.6--Obverse Spot Removed--NCS. Proof.
Design.
The central obverse is that of the regular issue Liberty nickel, with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and the date below. The reverse depicts a large Roman numeral V within a wreath of corn and cotton with E PLURIBUS UNUM at the top. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary.
The year 1882 was a replay of 1866, with nickel patterns being the order of the day. Charles Barber introduced his Liberty head on a limited number of patterns in the previous year, including cent, three-cent, and five-cent patterns. In 1882 his design appeared on numerous pattern nickels with a variety of obverse and reverse design variations. The same obverse device remained in use for several patterns in 1883.

Physical Description.
This pattern is a stunning Cameo proof with bold design details and brilliant nickel-gray surfaces. Only the removal of a tiny spot on Liberty's cheek keeps this piece from a high numerical grade.

Provenance.
Ex: Stack's (3/1973), lot 442.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
