    Key-Date 1885 Liberty Head Nickel, MS66

    1885 5C MS66 PCGS. With a low mintage of less than 1.5 million pieces, the 1885 is the key issue in the Liberty Head nickel series, and as such is a date much in demand by collectors. It is easy enough to locate as a proof, but unquestioned Mint State business strikes are very elusive, and full Gem examples are especially desirable. Q. David Bowers remarks " A sharply struck Gem Mint State 1885 nickel is a great find for the knowing connoisseur." This specimen is a problem-free, original coin that is fully struck and nearly blemish-free. The surfaces are highly lustrous beneath an overlay of golden patina, as faint reddish-apricot streaks are apparent on both obverse and reverse. Population: 15 in 66, 2 finer (3/09).
    From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 2773, PCGS# 3846)
