    1882 Liberty Head Five Cents in Nickel
    Judd-1692, PR64+ Cameo

    1882 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1692, Pollock-1894, Low R.7, PR64+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse die is dated 1882 and is similar to the regular die for the 1883 Liberty Head nickel, but the stars are arranged slightly differently. The reverse is the first variety of 1883, lacking CENTS on the lower portion. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The fields are remarkably reflective and provide the "black" background for the white, frosted design elements. A few tiny planchet flakes are seen on each side and a short strike-through is located on the lower reverse to the right of the denomination (probably struck through a piece of wire). Brilliant and fully struck.

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 535164)
