Description

Lightly Toned, Key Date 1885 Nickel, MS66

1885 5C MS66 PCGS. The 1885 is the key date among regular-issue Liberty Head nickels. It is scarce in circulated grades, and rare in Mint State (David Bowers, A Guide Book of Shield and Liberty Head Nickels).
This Premium Gem example is a fully struck piece with lovely soft golden toning, joined by subtle highlights of lilac on the obverse and powder-blue on the reverse. As one would expect from an MS66, there are no mentionable marks on either side. A terrific opportunity for the Liberty nickel collector. Population: 15 in 66, 2 finer (9/08).
From The Scott Rudolph Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 2773, PCGS# 3846)

I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
