    1883 Liberty Nickel Pattern, Judd-1717, PR66

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1717, Pollock-1922, High R.6, PR66 NGC. The obverse is identical to regular issue Liberty Nickels, and the reverse is similar to the adopted design, but the Roman numeral V is slightly smaller with a scroll across it inscribed CENTS. This was an added feature that was left off the adopted design, but changed later in the year to deter unscrupulous people that reeded the edges, gold plated the coins (without CENTS), and passed them off as Half Eagles. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. This well mirrored specimen is endowed with an exacting strike and is layered in milky patina that is heavier on the reverse.
    From The Western Hills Collection.(#62134)
