    1883 Liberty Nickel, Struck in Pure Nickel
    Judd-1704, PR67 Ultra Cameo

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1704, Pollock-1908, Low R.6, PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. CAC. The obverse is similar in design to the Liberty nickel adopted in this year, except around the obverse instead of stars are the words 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 (and as such a magnetic coin) with a plain edge. By far, the finest example we have seen of this interesting, experimental pattern. The surfaces are bright and untoned with stark cameo contrast between the deeply mirrored fields and frosted devices. Absolutely pristine and unhairlined. This is the only PR67 Deep/Ultra Cameo of this pattern that has received CAC endorsement.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AKT, Variety PCGS# 962120, Base PCGS# 62120)
