    1883 Liberty Nickel in Aluminum
    Judd-1719, PR66 Cameo

    1883 5C Five Cents, Judd-1719, Pollock-1924, Low R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the same as the 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. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Saul Teichman of, who estimates about a half dozen Judd-1719 coins extant, writes that this is "probably the most popular variety of this year. It is believed that this pattern was created to correct for the regular production issue not having the denomination 5 Cents on it." Famously, it is purported that certain individuals would gold-plate examples of the No CENTS nickels and attempt to pass them off as five dollar gold pieces. This typically brilliant and Cameo-contrasted aluminum pattern is marvelously preserved. The watery fields and frosted motifs are readily appealing.
