Description:
1882 Liberty Nickel Pattern in Copper
Judd-1691, PR64 Brown
1882 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1691, Pollock-1893, High R.6, PR64 Brown NGC. CAC.
Design.
The obverse appears the same as the regular die of 1883, but it is actually struck from an obverse die with a slightly different arrangement of the stars. The reverse is as the first variety of 1883, the "nickel without CENTS." Struck in copper with a plain edge.

Commentary. Judd-1691 is a popular issue and is reasonably available in the context of the pattern series. This design was also struck in nickel (Judd-1690) and aluminum (Judd-1692). Curiously, Robert Coulton Davis did not list this variety in his seminal work on patterns in the Coin Collectors Journal, even though he had a specimen in his collection - lot 1131a of the R.C. Davis Collection (New York Coin & Stamp, 1/1890). Perhaps he acquired his example after publishing his research.

Physical Description. Pleasing shades of chestnut-brown toning cover much of the well-preserved surfaces of this attractive Choice example, with a few hints of original red and blue intermingled. The design elements are well-detailed and surface marks are minimal. Areas of bright reflectivity show at intervals beneath the patina. Census: 1 in 64 Brown, 1 finer (3/13).

Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $17.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 62096)
