    Finest Known 1883 Judd-1717 Pattern Liberty Nickel

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1717, Pollock-1922, High R.6, PR67 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 example is essentially brilliant with just a hint of gray-rose patina overall. A tiny curlicue lintmark is noted at the rear base of Liberty's neck for future identification purposes. To date, this is the finest known example to both certification services (9/04).
    From The A. James Evans Collection.(#62134)
