    1883 Liberty Head Five Cents in Nickel
    Judd-1717, PR66 Ultra Cameo

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1717, Pollock-1922, High R.6, PR66 Ultra Cameo NGC. The obverse is identical to regular issue Liberty nickel, 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 Premium Gem is entirely brilliant and boldly contrasted with jet-black fields and frosted relief elements.
    From The Collection of William Rau. (Variety PCGS# 389221, Base PCGS# 62134)
