    Experimental 1883 Five-Cent Pattern of Magnetic Alloy, Judd-1707

    1883 Five-Cents, Judd-1707, Pollock-1911, R.6-7, PR 65 PCGS. The central obverse device is similar to the head of Liberty adopted on the regular issue five-cent pieces of this year, the date is below, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the margin. The reverse shows the experimental nature of this pattern with 75 N./25 C. in the center, surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn, FIVE on the upper border, CENTS on the lower border, with thirteen stars arranged seven left and six right at the margin. Struck in a magnetic alloy of 75% nickel and 25% copper with a plain edge. The fields are well mirrored and the surfaces overall are quite pleasing with only the tiniest imperfections noted in the preparation of the planchet. Light, streaky, golden-brown toning is seen over both sides but this pale patination does not obscure the underlying surfaces. (PCGS# 61707)
