    Lightly Worn AU53 1918/7-D Nickel
    The Overdate Classic

    1918/7-D 5C AU53 NGC. FS-101. The 1918/7-D nickel is the result of a dual-hub error, in which two working hubs (raised surface) with differing final digits were mixed up between annealings or work-hardenings of a single working die (incuse surface). This is the source of the overdates from the early to middle 20th century. the same phenomenon was also responsible for the 1960 Large Date over Small Date and Small Date over Large Date cents.
    Modern technology precludes such occurrences, but it was developed far too late to stop this Denver overdate. Both sides of the AU53 representative offered here are sharply detailed, aside from the worn and slightly weak high points. Both sides are richly toned gunmetal-gray with aspects of violet and gold, and soft luster filters through. A noteworthy coin in all respects.(Registry values: N4719)
