    1883 Liberty Nickel in Aluminum
    Judd-1711, PR66
    Single Finest at PCGS

    1883 5C Liberty Nickel, Judd-1711, Pollock-1915, R.7, PR66 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse die is similar to the regular-issue Liberty nickel, but UNITED STATES OF AMERICA replaces stars around the peripheries. Peripheral stars appear on the reverse, with FIVE above and CENTS below, with a wreath -- again similar to the regular issue -- containing 50 N. / 50 C. on two lines, a reference to a 50:50 nickel / copper mix. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Judd-1711 is very rare. NGC has certified just two specimens, both as MS66 (11/20). PCGS has graded four pieces, with the present lot as the single finest (11/20). This well-struck Premium Gem displays noticeable contrast between the radiant motifs and the glassy fields, though the coin is undesignated as Cameo. The surfaces are virtually void of imperfections. We note only a small lint mark northeast of the wreath bow, and a blush of cloudy patina near the V in FIVE.
