Transitional 1883 Nickel in Copper
1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1715, Pollock-1920, High
R.7, PR64 Brown NGC. The Charles Barber Liberty Head portrait.
Here she sports a plain coronet, as the word LIBERTY is at the top
rim, with stars six left and seven right, date 1883 below. The
reverse displays the regular NO CENTS die of 1883. Struck in copper
with a plain edge. This is one of the few patterns that has the
wording removed from the diadem, coronet, shield, and other design
elements. Only four examples are confirmed of this issue in copper.
It is marginally more available (with six pieces believed known) in
aluminum, and approximately two dozen nickel examples are known.
Both sides are evenly balanced in appearance. The fields are nicely
reflective and enliven the otherwise dense brown, rose, and blue
colors. The strike is complete on both obverse and reverse. A
couple of small spots on each side undoubtedly explain the PR64
grade; otherwise a Gem. (NGC ID# 2AL5, PCGS# 62132)
