    1883 Liberty Nickel in Aluminum
    Judd-1716, PR65

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1716, Pollock-1921, High R.7, PR65 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. 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. USPatterns.com describes this as "one of the more popular patterns of this year. Many collectors believe this design is superior to the regular production 1883 design." About a half dozen examples are known in aluminum. Brilliant surfaces feature attractively mirrored fields and minimal evidence of contact. Both sides show minor laminations and blushes of chestnut color.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 3B6L, PCGS# 62133)
