    1881 Liberty Head Cent by Barber
    Judd-1665, PR66 Cameo

    1881 1C Liberty Head One Cent, Judd-1665, Pollock-1865, High R.6, PR66 Cameo NGC. CAC. 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. Deeply mirrored on each side with thickly frosted devices. Mostly brilliant with the slightest golden streakiness in the planchet (visible only with magnification).
    Ex: Houston Signature (Heritage, 12/2008), lot 1775.
    From The A. James Evans Collection, Part II. (NGC ID# 2AJP, Variety PCGS# 862061, Base PCGS# 62061)
