1882 Liberty Head Nickel, Struck in Nickel
1882 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1680, Pollock-1882, Low
R.6, PR64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The portrait of Liberty is
identical to the adopted design of 1883, but here it is surrounded
by UNITED STATES OF AMERICA instead of stars, and shows the date
(1882) below. The border denticles are quite wide. The reverse
features a wreath of corn and cotton encircling a large Roman
numeral V. The motto E PLURIBUS UNUM is above. Struck in nickel
with a plain edge. USPatterns.com suggests the surviving population
numbers about two dozen pieces. This sharply detailed Choice
example displays well-preserved surfaces with subtle highlights of
bluish-gray and sea-green toning. Population: 9 in 64, 7 finer
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AK4, PCGS# 62085)
