    1896 Five Cent, Exceptional MS66
    Conditionally Rare Issue

    1896 5C MS66 PCGS. CAC. The 1896 nickel had a relatively small mintage of 8.8 million-plus pieces, creating a key date. Sharply struck pieces in the higher levels of Mint State are very elusive. While PCGS and NGC have certified over 100 Gems, the two services have seen fewer than 20 MS66 specimens and none finer.

    This Premium Gem offering displays pleasing luster, along with an occasional wisp of orange patina that shows up under magnification. Sharper definition is seen on the design elements than on those of most Mint State examples. The only softness occurs on the left ear of corn. No significant marks or spots are visible on either side. Population: 13 in 66 (1 in 66+), 0 finer (3/14).
    Ex: Los Angeles Signature (Heritage, 8/2009), lot 1042, which realized $12,650.
    From The Jim O'Neal Collection of U.S. Type, Part One.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 277B, PCGS# 3857)
