    1882 Liberty Head Nickel Pattern in Nickel
    Judd-1684, PR64

    1882 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1684, Pollock-1886, Low R.6, PR64 NGC. The obverse is similar to that adopted for the regular issue Liberty nickel in 1883, but the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA has replaced the stars around the periphery. The reverse depicts a large Roman numeral V within a wreath of corn and cotton with E PLURIBUS UNUM at the top. Of lesser note is that the dentils are thinner on this pattern than the regular issue, and the diameter is slightly less at only 21 mm. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Each side is slightly granular, but the fields are nevertheless bright and reflective. While the surfaces are brilliant overall, there is a slight accent of reddish patina evident when closely examined. The only defect of note is a spot that was removed by pinscratching in the field to the lower right of the V.
