PR66 Judd-1717 1883 Liberty Nickel1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1717, Pollock-1922, High R.6, PR66 NGC. 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. A scandal emerged in 1883 when con men gold plated the new No Cents Liberty nickels and passed them off as half eagles. This pattern was designed to prevent further shenanigans. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. This is a precisely struck and lightly toned Premium Gem with consistently pleasing surfaces. Census: 1 in 66, 1 finer (6/08). (PCGS# 62134)
