Description:

1883 PURE NICKEL Five Cents
Struck in Aluminum
Judd-1706, PR67 Cameo
1883 P5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1706, Pollock-1910, High R.7, PR67 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 aluminum with a plain edge.

Commentary. Possibly as many as six examples of this pattern are known, including this piece and four others certified by NGC, and three specimens certified by PCGS. The Newman example is the only one given a Cameo designation at either grading service.

Physical Description. This gorgeous Superb Gem Cameo proof exhibits bold design definition with outstanding field-to-device contrast that is the result of deeply mirrored fields surrounding frosty devices. Both sides are brilliant light gray, with impressive eye appeal.

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 @ $20; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 62122)
