    1883 Transitional Liberty Nickel in Pure Nickel
    Judd-1704, PR64 Cameo

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1704, Pollock-1908, Low R.6, PR64 Cameo PCGS. The obverse is similar in design to the Liberty nickel adopted this year, except the stars are replaced with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The reverse has a central inscription that reads PURE NICKEL, surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn. FIVE CENTS is separated above and below with seven stars left and six right. Struck in pure nickel, which makes examples magnetic, with a plain edge. The fields show exceptional depth of mirroring which establishes a "black" background for the heavily frosted devices. Splendidly preserved.
    From The A. James Evans Collection, Part II.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AKT, PCGS# 62120)
