Description:
Transitional 1882 Liberty Head Five Cent in Copper
Judd-1691, PR62 Red and Brown
1882 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1691, Pollock-1893, R.6, PR62 Red and Brown 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 a wreath of corn and cotton, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA circling the rim and E PLURIBUS UNUM below. Struck in copper with a plain edge.

Commentary.
The term "nickel" as a denomination earlier applied to the copper-nickel Indian cents, introduced in 1859, then to the three cent nickel that was launched in 1865, then to the five cent Shield nickel that debuted in 1866. By the time the Liberty nickel premiered in 1883, the term had come to rest firmly on the five cent piece, where it remains today. This piece represents a second opportunity for Liberty nickel collectors to obtain an interesting and unusual piece as a complement to their regular-issue collections.

Physical Description.
Sunset-orange patina dominates, with some tinges of purple-blue through the high points of the center obverse. Tiny flecks appear under a loupe, but this piece offers considerably more appeal than the numerical grade indicates. NGC Census: 1 in PR62 Red and Brown, 4 finer. PCGS Population: None in PR62 Red and Brown, 7 finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: D.E.A. and U.S. Marshals Service Sale (Heritage, 12/1988), lot 1899.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 82096)
