    Very Rare Aluminum Striking of the 33 N/ 67 C. Pattern From 1883

    1883 Five-Cents, Judd-1713, Pollock-1917, R.7, PR 65 PCGS. The central device on the obverse is of Charles Barber's design for the five-cent piece adopted in 1883, the date is below, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the margin. The reverse bears the experimental notation 33 N./ 67 C., surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn, FIVE CENTS at the top and bottom, separated by seven stars left and six right. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. The surfaces are bright throughout with deeply mirrored fields and mild frost on the devices. One spot of oxidation is noted below the I in AMERICA, which enables the coin to be tracked for pedigree purposes. Tied with one other piece as finest certified (that also is a PCGS coin). Apparently only three pieces of this rare issue are known. There are no examples of this rare pattern in the five major institutional collections of patterns surveyed for this auction.
    Ex: George Polis Collection (B&M, 6/91); Major Lenox R. Lohr Collection (Empire Coin Co., 1961). (NGC ID# 5VHC, PCGS# 61713)
