    1881 Liberty Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-1667, PR65 Cameo

    1881 1C Liberty Cent, Judd-1667, Pollock-1867, Low R.7, PR65 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The design features Charles Barber's Liberty bust and wreath associated with the Liberty nickel, although here in diminutive form with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA moved to the obverse replacing the stars. The reverse has a tall Roman numeral I and no other legend. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. This crisply struck Gem displays blatant cameo contrast. The preservation is outstanding, and the sole relevant imperfection is a mint-made narrow lamination streak through the second 8 in the date. Population: 1 in 65 Cameo, 0 finer (9/20).
