Description:
Beautiful 1882 Liberty Head Five Cent
Judd-1690, PR65
1882 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1690, Pollock-1892, R.5, PR65 NGC.
Design.
The Charles Barber Liberty Head obverse, here in a so-called "transitional" design, nearly the regular issue but dated 1882. Head facing left, similar to the adopted Liberty Head nickel design, but there are slight differences in the position of the stars. The date is below. The reverse is the same as the infamous 1883 NO CENTS reverse: A Roman numeral V is flanked by an agricultural wreath, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA circling the rim and E PLURIBUS UNUM below. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary.
The transitional patterns such as the Judd-1690 1882 Liberty Head nickel and the Judd-232 1859 half dime are doubly popular, as they are collected both by pattern collectors and by collectors of the regular-series issues and varieties who desire "something special" but might not otherwise dream of collecting patterns in general. With several dozen examples available in the numismatic marketplace, this pattern also has wider availability than most other issues.

Physical Description.
A beautiful Gem example, with a sharp strike characteristic of the regular-issue proofs, essentially free of distractions and with gray and champagne hues throughout. A tiny dark spot near the bottom of the 2 in the date provides pedigree identification but is otherwise completely undisturbing. NGC Census: 5 in PR65, 4 finer. PCGS Population: 6 in PR65, 10 finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Stack's private treaty (9/1985).
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 62095)
