    1883 Liberty Head Five Cents in Copper
    Judd-1715, PR64+ Brown

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1715, Pollock-1920, High R.7, PR64+ Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features Charles Barber's Liberty Head portrait, wearing 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. The design was also struck in nickel (Judd-1714) and aluminum (Judd-1716). USPatterns.com has traced five examples of Judd-1715. Both sides of this Plus-graded Choice example 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. Population: 1 in 64 (1 in 64+) Brown, 1 finer (1/21).
