    1883 Experimental Alloy Five-Cent Pattern, Judd-1710

    1883 Five-Cents, Judd-1710, Pollock-1914, R.5-6, PR 65 PCGS. The head of Liberty as seen on the adopted coins of 1883 is used as the central device on the obverse, the date below, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the perimeter. The central reverse device indicates the coin's experimental alloy, 50 N./50 C., surrounded by a small wreath of cotton and corn with FIVE CENTS at top and bottom separated by seven stars left and six right. Stuck in an experimental alloy of half nickel and half copper with a plain edge. The fields are deeply mirrored and the devices frosted, setting up an attractive cameo contrast. Several tiny planchet flakes are noted on each side, with the only post-striking impairment of note being a small carbon spot to the right of the 3 in the date. (NGC ID# 2AB7, PCGS# 61710)
