1896 5C MS66 NGC....
Lower Mintage 1896 Nickel MS661896 5C MS66 NGC. The lower mintage 1896 has long been a collector favorite. This attractive high grade example has blazing luster and moderate powder-blue and olive toning. The left ear of corn and the uppermost star is incompletely brought up, but the overall strike is good. Thorough evaluation beneath a powerful loupe will find only the infrequent and inconsequential luster graze. The 1896 has a mintage of less than 9 million pieces, the only such post-1894 Philadelphia business strike within the series. Census: 2 in 66, 0 finer (11/08).
Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 10/2006), lot 460.
