    1883 Liberty Nickel in Nickel
    Judd-1710, PR65 Cameo

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1710, Pollock-1914, R.5, PR65 Cameo PCGS. CAC. The obverse is similar to the regular issue 1883 Liberty nickel, but UNITED STATES OF AMERICA substitutes for 13 stars around the periphery. The reverse reads 50 N. / 50C. within a wreath of corn and cotton, FIVE above and CENTS is below. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Several compositions of nickel are known, but this remains an understudied area. A total of two or three dozen nickel examples are believed extant. The surfaces initially present as brilliant but closer examination reveals slight ice-blue and rose patina. The fields are deeply mirrored with thick mint frost over the devices, the combination producing the cameo effect.
