1882 Liberty Head Five Cents in Nickel
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.
