1883 Liberty Nickel Pattern, Struck in Nickel
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).
