1885 Three Cent Nickel in Aluminum
1885 P3C Judd-1741, Pollock-1953, R.8, PR66 Cameo PCGS. Ex:
Simpson. Each side features the regular three cent nickel design
for the year. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Two examples
are known: The Simpson and Denali coins, both graded PR66 Cameo by
PCGS. The latter is ex: Walter Lee Crouch. This may be the Farouk
example, but we have no way of confirming. Both sides are brilliant
silver-gray with characteristic Cameo contrast typical of aluminum
pattern coinage. A fleck on Liberty's neck serves as an attribution
Judd-1741, Two Known, PR66 Cameo
