Description:
1883 Liberty Nickel, PR65
Rare Aluminum Variant, Judd-1720
1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1720, Pollock-1927, R.8, PR65 NGC.
Design.
Both obverse and reverse features the designs adopted for the With CENTS regular-issue coinage in 1883. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge.

Commentary. Struck as a regular dies trial, with examples known in copper (Judd-1719A) and the present aluminum version (Judd-1720). This issue was not listed by Robert Coulton Davis in his early work on patterns. An example was included in William Woodin's collection and it passed to Judson Brenner, who exhibited it at the 1914 ANS Exhibition (a typo in the listing states the date is 1892, but the Adams-Woodin number is the correct AW-1701).

Physical Description. The design elements are sharply detailed throughout, with exquisite definition on the strands of hair and ears of corn. The devices are frosty and the fields are deeply mirrored, with a few streaks of jade and amber toning. No mentionable surface flaws are evident. Census: 1 in 65, 0 finer (3/13).

Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $35; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 62137)
