    1883 Pattern Liberty Nickel Struck In Pure Nickel

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1704, Pollock-1908, Low R.6, PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. The obverse is similar in design to the Liberty nickel adopted in 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 nickel with a plain edge. This is one of several patterns from this year that uses different alloys of nickel and/or copper, showing their composition on the reverse within the wreath. This pure nickel composition is magnetic, and it is believed that more than a dozen are known today. This particular piece is fully struck throughout, quite an unusual occurrence given the hardness of pure nickel. Also, there are no die cracks evident on either side. The fields are very deeply mirrored and the devices show generous mint luster. An exceptionally pleasing example of this important pattern issue. Population: 9 in 65, 2 finer (8/04).(#62120) (NGC ID# 3AUA, PCGS# 62120)
