1882 Pattern Five Cents. Nickel, plain edge. Judd-1684. Pollock-1886, Rarity-6. PCGS graded Proof 65. The planchet of this coin shows slight roughness, as made at the Mint. Bright and fresh, with no signs of toning aside from a hint of haze on the back of Liberty's head. A few very faint lines from handling. Excellent contrast between the reflective fields and frosty devices. About as nice as these are found, PCGS has graded 9 this high, with none graded higher and a total of just 20 in all grades (PCGS # 62089) .
Estimated Value $1,200 - 1,500.
From the Benson collection and purchased from an unknown source circa 1944-46 as lot 350B.

Realized $3,450
