1881 Liberty Head Cent in Nickel
1881 1C Liberty Head One Cent, Judd-1665, Pollock-1865, High
R.6, PR64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The motifs closely resemble those
on the issued 1883 Liberty nickel, but the obverse stars are absent
in favor of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and on the reverse the Roman
numeral is I instead of V. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.
These designs were also used on the three cent (Judd-1668) and five
cent (Judd-1671) designs of this year. Probably about two dozen
examples of Judd-1665 are extant. This impressive Choice proof is
sharply detailed throughout, with lightly marked surfaces that are
blanketed in attractive shades of lavender-gray and sea-green
toning. Population: 4 in 64, 7 finer (4/20).
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AJP, PCGS# 62061)
