Description:
1882 Liberty Head Nickel Pattern
Judd-1690, PR66
1882 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1690, Pollock-1892, R.5, PR66 PCGS. Extremely popular as a transitional pattern, Judd-1690 employs an obverse similar to the adopted 1883 Liberty Head nickel, with a slightly different arrangement of the stars. On Judd-1690, the stars behind Liberty's head seem slightly wider spaced than on the adopted design. The reverse is the same as the regular-issue of 1883, the infamous NO CENTS variety. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.
Judd-1690 enjoyed great popularity with pattern collectors as early as the 1880s. An example was offered at public auction in the Woodside Collection (New York Coin & Stamp, 4/1892), lot 385, "1882 Five Cents: same as adopted type of 1883: nickel: proof; rare." Note the cataloger failed to notice the subtle difference in star placement.
The present coin is a magnificent example, with deeply reflective fields and light golden-steel toning on both sides. Population: 8 in 66, 2 finer (11/09). (PCGS# 62095)
