    1919-D Nickel, MS66
    Struck From Fresh Dies
    Unusually Sharp and Smooth

    1919-D 5C MS66 PCGS. CAC. The Denver Mint had significant difficulty producing sharp strikes during this period, a problem not helped by the hard alloy of the Buffalo nickel. The 1919-D nickel is not scarce in the absolute sense, but striking quality varies widely, and the collector may have to search a long time before having an opportunity to acquire a sharp example. The present coin is truly exceptional, as it is uncharacteristically well-defined on both sides with satiny golden-gray luster. The coin is struck from fresh dies, with no evidence of the usual die erosion in the recesses. As many nickel dies were used well-beyond their normal wear boundaries during this period, finding an example of any branch mint issue without flow lines and signs of die fatigue is a rare acquisition. Housed in an old green label holder, this piece is tied with just 17 others as the finest certified at PCGS (10/14).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22RM, PCGS# 3942)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
