    1883 Aluminum Transitional Nickel
    Judd-1716, PR65

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1716, Pollock-1921, High R.7, PR65 NGC. Ex: Exemplar Collection. The design is similar to the regular-issue 1883 No CENTS Liberty nickel, but LIBERTY is absent on the coronet, instead spread across the upper obverse rim. The stars are smaller and arranged 6 x 7. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. The copper strikings of this design are the ones most commonly encountered. Only five pieces are listed in copper, and an estimated half dozen are believed known in aluminum. The surfaces are not striated or oxidized, but exhibit streakiness inherent in the aluminum itself, most likely from the extraction process. Still, the surfaces are bright and the fields nicely mirrored, with moderate mint frost seen over the devices. (NGC ID# 2AL6, PCGS# 62133)
