    Aluminum Striking From Experimental Nickel Dies, Judd-1711

    1883 Five-Cents, Judd-1711, Pollock-1915, R.7, PR 64 PCGS. The central obverse design uses Barber's head of Liberty from the adopted nickel design of this year, the date is below with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. The center of the reverse has the experimental alloy designation 50 N./50 C., surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn, FIVE at the top, CENTS at the bottom, seven stars left, and six right. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. The dies show evidence of heavy polishing in the fields with a few wispy hairlines scattered about. Struck from rusted dies with several raised streaks of rust on the figure of Liberty above and behind the eye, which would suggest the piece was actually produced several years after the date on the coin.
    Ex: Somerset Collection (B&M, 5/92), lot 1706. (NGC ID# 2AB8, PCGS# 61711)
