    1883 Liberty Nickel, Struck in Nickel
    Judd-1717, PR66 Cameo

    1883 5C Five Cent Piece, Judd-1717, Pollock-1922, High R.6, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is identical to regular issue Liberty nickel, and the reverse is similar to the adopted design, but the Roman numeral V is slightly smaller with a scroll across it inscribed CENTS. This was an added feature that was left off the adopted design, but changed later in the year to deter unscrupulous people that reeded the edges, gold plated the coins (without CENTS), and passed them off as half eagles. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The fields are bright and reflective with pronounced mint frost over the devices, which gives the coin a noticeable cameo contrast. Strongly struck throughout. Pale lavender patina is seen across each side.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AL7, Variety PCGS# 389221, Base PCGS# 62134)
