    1883 Liberty Nickel in Aluminum
    Judd-1720, PR64+

    1883 5C Liberty Nickel, Judd-1720, Pollock-1927, High R.7, PR64+ PCGS. Ex: Newman-Simpson. Both obverse and reverse features the designs that are similar to those adopted for the With CENTS regular-issue coinage in 1883. The wreath on the reverse differs from the adopted design. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. USPatterns.com explains that "over a half dozen believed to exist on apparently very poor planchets." Indeed, this and all other examples seen are somewhat streaky with voids. This near-Gem is brilliant and fully struck. The fields are glassy and reflective.
