    1885 Three Cent Nickel in Aluminum
    Judd-1741, Two Known, PR66+ Cameo

    1885 P3C Three Cent Nickel, Judd-1741, Pollock-1953, R.8, PR66+ Cameo PCGS. CAC 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 marker.

    Coin Index Numbers: (Variety PCGS# 800057, Base PCGS# 62183)
