    1977-S Nickel, PR64 Cameo
    Struck on a Philippines 10 Sentimos Planchet

    1977-S 5C Jefferson Nickel -- Struck on a Philippines 10 Sentimos Planchet -- PR64 Cameo PCGS. 2.04 grams. In 1976, the U.S. Mint secured a contract to produce 250 million coins for the Central Bank of the Philippines. The San Francisco branch was selected as the coining facility, where U.S. proof sets were also produced. This 1977-S proof nickel was struck on an errant Philippines 10 sentimos planchet, which has a copper-nickel alloy and weighs roughly 2 grams. The planchet is well-centered in the Jefferson nickel dies on this piece, with portions of the border legends off the flan all the way around. Yet, the date and mintmark are legible. Both sides have good cameo contrast and bright silver surfaces.
