    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.
