    1883 Liberty Nickel Variant in Aluminum
    Judd-1711, PR65

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1711, Pollock-1915, Low R.7, PR65 PCGS. The obverse die is similar to the regular-issue Liberty nickel, but UNITED STATES OF AMERICA replaces stars around the peripheries. Peripheral stars appear on the reverse, with FIVE above and CENTS below, with a wreath -- again similar to the regular issue -- containing 50 N. / 50 C. on two lines, a reference to a 50:50 nickel / copper mix. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Two to three dozen nickel strikes were produced, but aluminum pieces are rare with only a half dozen or so known. The surfaces are bright and unoxidized with deeply reflective fields. There are a few contact marks and minor planchet flaws scattered across each side, but none are individually bothersome.

    Had we endeavored to sell it without your support, it would have taken us at least 10 lifetimes, i.e. it would have been impossible.
