Sharp 1883 Liberty Head Five Cent
Judd-1712, PR66 Cameo

1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1712, Pollock-1916, Low R.6, PR66 Cameo NGC.
Design.
The obverse is the regular-issue Liberty Head nickel. The reverse is the traditional wreath of corn, cotton, maple, and wheat, with 33 N. / 67 C. in the center. FIVE is at the top rim and CENTS at the bottom rim, with stars seven left, six right. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary.
Again, the purported alloy is not necessarily that which was actually used. Another fairly available (relatively speaking, that is) Liberty Head nickel pattern issue, the perfect acquisition to spice up a nice collection of regular-issue proofs or business strikes. The Pollock pattern reference notes that a hoard of 16 specimens passed from the William H. Woodin collection to F.C.C. Boyd, later to Abe Kosoff, with most of them bought later by Sol Kaplan.

Physical Description.
Silver-white surfaces display a touch of gold, with excellent field-device contrast and premium eye appeal. Sharply struck, and with no obvious distractions. NGC Census: While there are eight PR66 examples certified at NGC in all contrast levels, this is the only PR66 Cameo, and there is only one PR66 Ultra Cameo, with no coins numerically finer. PCGS Population: 2 in PR66 without designation, none finer either numerically or as a PR66 with a designation (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Bowers and Merena (3/1989), lot 25.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
(NGC ID# 6LFZ, PCGS# 62129)
