    1953-D Nickel, MS67 Full Steps
    The Single Finest Certified
    Registry Set Must-Have

    1953-D 5C MS67 Full Steps PCGS. In the context of the period, the 1953-D Jefferson nickel is moderately plentiful with Full Steps, but such coins are rarely seen in high grade. This Superb Gem Full Steps coin ranks as the sole finest certified and is a full grade point superior to the coin in the current highest-rated Registry Set. A pair of MS66+ PCGS coins trail as the second finest known (11/15). The bold relief elements deliver exceptional visual appeal when paired with the softly blended multicolor toning that encompasses each side in somewhat concentric hues that leave the centers cool lavender-blue. A couple of insignificant ticks are barely worthy of mention. This numerically unequaled 1953-D will be a highlight addition to a high-ranking Registry Set and may not be offered at auction again for some time to come.(Registry values: P1)
