Description:
1883 Liberty Head Five Cent
Struck in 'Pure Nickel'
Judd-1704, PR64 Cameo
1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1704, Pollock-1908, Low R.6, PR64 Cameo NGC.
Design.
The obverse is similar in design to the Liberty nickel adopted in this year, except the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA replaces the stars. On the reverse a wreath of corn, cotton, maple, and wheat surrounds a central inscription that reads PURE NICKEL. FIVE CENTS is separated above and below with seven stars left and six right. Struck in pure nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary.
The year 1883 continues the popular Liberty nickel pattern series begun in 1882. Although elemental analysis reveals that some patterns of this year were struck in metallic compositions other than those inscribed on them, this particular design, if truly struck in pure nickel, will adhere to a magnet.

Physical Description.
The surfaces are silver-white with good contrast between the radiant fields and well-frosted devices. Some grayish haze covers a portion of Liberty and the obverse field nearby, while the reverse offers spectacularly deep contrast. NGC Census: 1 in PR64 Cameo, 4 finer plus 2 additional pieces graded PR66, but lacking the Cameo designation. PCGS Population: None in PR64 Cameo, 2 finer plus an additional 10 pieces lacking the Cameo designation but graded PR65 or PR66 (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Bolender Sale (6/1935), lot 1492; Stack's private treaty.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 62120)
