Description

1896 Liberty Nickel, MS66
Among the Most Elusive of the Series in High Grade

1896 5C MS66 PCGS. CAC. The frosty surfaces are extremely well-struck on this Premium Gem coin -- even that pesky lower-left ear of corn shows much detail. All the star centrils are present and accounted for, and Liberty's hair, coronet, and floral headdress are all full. That lower-reverse wreath is not quite all there, but it is far sharper than normally seen. A couple of stray flecks of rose appear on the obverse under a loupe, and marks are minimal. This is among the most elusive Liberty nickel issues in high grade, and the needle-sharp strike and CAC approval make this piece even more desirable. Population: 11 in 66 (1 in 66+), 0 finer (7/13).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 277B, PCGS# 3857)

HA is a traditional auction house, they set up their auctions slightly different from typical domain auctions. This works well, it seems to be a good mix of old age (live bidding in a prestigious hotel) and new age (online bidding).
