    1883 Liberty Nickel Pattern, Struck in Nickel
    Judd-1710, PR67 Deep Cameo

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1710, Pollock-1914, R.5, PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. 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 is above and CENTS is below. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Several patterns were struck in 1883 using this basic design, but with different compositions listed on the reverse. This remains an understudied area. A total of two or three dozen nickel examples are believed extant. This spectacular Superb Gem exhibits pinpoint definition on all the design elements and the untoned surfaces are virtually flawless. Population: 1 in 67 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (4/20).
