Description

1883 With Cents Nickel Pattern
Judd-1717, PR65 Cameo
Similar to the Adopted Design

1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1717, Pollock-1922, High R.6, PR65 Cameo NGC.
Design. The obverse is identical to regular issue Liberty nickels, and the reverse is similar to the adopted design, but the Roman numeral V is slightly smaller and has a scroll across it inscribed CENTS. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary. A scandal emerged in 1883 when swindlers gold plated the new No Cents Liberty nickels and passed them off as half eagles. This pattern was developed to prevent further shenanigans. The similarity of its design to the regular issue Liberty nickel led Saul Teichman to comment at USPatterns.com that Judd-1717 "is probably the most popular variety of this year."

Physical Description. This lovely Cameo proof has exceptional contrast with fully mirrored fields around its lustrous and sharply defined devices. The nickel-gray surfaces have scattered spots with hints of champagne toning.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 389221)
