    1882 Liberty Nickel in Copper
    Judd-1678, PR65 Red and Brown
    Tied for Finest Certified

    1882 5C Liberty Nickel, Judd-1678, Pollock-1880, High R.7, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse has a bust of Liberty as on the adopted design of 1883, but is surrounded by UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the date. A large Roman numeral V is on the reverse within a wreath of cotton and corn and IN GOD WE TRUST is in small letters above. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This transitional pattern was also struck in nickel and aluminum. A rare pattern, with a total of only six pieces certified at NGC and PCGS combined (11/20). None are certified as Red. The present specimen is tied with one other for the honor of finest certified. The peach-gold surfaces are fairly close to a Red designation, but the reverse displays hints of lilac toning on the lower left exergue and the left interior of the wreath. The strike is good, and a few minor flecks are noted on the field near the neck curl.
