    1946-S Nickel, MS66
    Doubled Die Obverse

    1946-S 5C Doubled Die Obverse, FS-101, MS66 PCGS. Ex: Steve Strom Collection. Trumpet Tail S mintmark. FS-101 is the only major variety of the 1946-S nickel, characterized by prominent die doubling of LIBERTY and the date. This variety has been known for decades, but Mint State examples remain scarce and none are designated Full Steps. This Premium Gem is tied with one other as the finest at PCGS (11/15). The strike is bold for a non-Full Steps coin, and the surfaces yield smooth luster toned in champagne and lavender-gray hues.
    From The Steve Strom Collection. (NGC ID# 22U4, Variety PCGS# 38509, Base PCGS# 4030)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
