Deep Cameo PR68 1953 Jefferson Nickel1953 5C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. Rick Tomaska's modern coinage classic Cameo and Brilliant Proof Coinage of the 1950 to 1970 Era offers the following take on the proof 1953 Jefferson nickel issue: "Like the 1952, proof Jefferson nickels minted in 1953 are of generally high quality. ... This date becomes very difficult to locate in the higher levels of contrast. And although ultra-heavy pieces are not as difficult to locate as the 1950 or 1952 nickels in high grade cameo, they are extremely scarce."
This PR68 Deep Cameo specimen is one of only two so certified by PCGS with none finer (11/10). Deeply mirrored surfaces are virtually untoned on the obverse with just a touch of golden color over the reverse. Both sides are boldly contrasted and beautifully preserved.
From The Alex and Nan Proof Jefferson Nickel Collection.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 22YE, Variety PCGS# 94185, Base PCGS# 94172)
