Description & Analysis

Despite a slightly higher mintage, this subtype for 1883 is less common than the No CENTS proofs, though neither is rare. The probable explanation is that many of the 6,783 pieces coined in the latter part of 1883 were actually No CENTS proofs. To accommodate steady demand, the Mint continued to make both editions available, as well as the 1883 Shield Nickel, throughout the year.

The With CENTS nickel proofs were generally well made, and a suitable supply of gems has been certified by NGC. Also collectable are Cameo proofs, though Ultra Cameo examples remain very rare.

There is one die showing a triple-punched numeral 1 in the date, but this tripling is minor and, thus far, of little interest.
