    1881 Pattern Liberty Nickel, Judd-1671

    1881 Liberty Nickel, Judd-1671, Pollock-1872, R.6, PR 63 PCGS. An early prototype for the Liberty nickel which was adopted two years later. This version differs in several ways from the regular design. On the obverse UNITED STATES OF AMERICA encircles the rim rather than stars on the adopted design. On the reverse a very large V is surrounded by a large wreath with no statutory inscriptions on that side. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. A well defined example, the only grade-limiting factor is the coating of opaque-gray toning seen over each side that slightly mutes the surfaces. For pedigree purposes, a tiny contact mark is noted on Liberty's neck. (PCGS# 61671)
