Significant examples:
NGC Proof-65 (illustrated above).  Ex - Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach Sale", October 1-3, 2000, Lot 4418, where it was described as follows:  "Judd-1680, Pollock-1882. Nickel. Plain Edge. Superb cameo frosted relief on a base of mirror-polished Proof fields. An attractive gem. During 1882, C. E. Barber continued his attempt to produce an acceptable design for a new five cent piece, after several experiments in 1881. Judd-1680 has a large Roman numeral V in a wreath with no denomination; E PLURIBUS UNUM in small letters follows the rim at top."
