    1882 'Blind Man's' Liberty Nickel in Nickel
    Judd-1683, PR67 Deep Cameo

    1882 5C Liberty Nickel, Judd-1683, Pollock-1883, R.8, PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Liberty's portrait is identical to the adopted design of 1883, but is surrounded by UNITED STATES OF AMERICA instead of stars, and shows the date (1882) below. The border denticles are 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 five equally-spaced ridges on the edge, being accurately referred to as the "blind man's nickel." USPatterns.com writes: "Only 3 were struck according to the addenda in Haseltine's March 1883 sale but this is not correct... ." That website traces four distinct examples, and we believe this PR67 Deep Cameo represents a fifth. Total brilliance accentuates stark contrast on each side. The devices are thickly frosted, and the fields are mirrorlike. An important coin for Liberty nickel enthusiasts.
