1882 "Exact Type of 1883" Nickel Pattern, Judd-16901882 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1690, Pollock-1892, R.5, PR66 PCGS. Eliasberg Collection. The obverse appears to be the same as the regular die of 1883; however, it is actually struck from an obverse die with a slightly different arrangement of the stars. The reverse is as the first variety of 1883, the "nickel without cents." Judd comments, "Often seen circulated." This is a sparkling, deeply mirrored example that displays significant contrast between the fields and devices. Mostly brilliant, there is just the slightest bit of streaky gray patina on the reverse.
