Description

    Transitional 1883 Nickel in Copper
    Judd-1715, PR64 Brown
    One of Only Four Examples Known

    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)
