Surprising Premium Gem 1912-S Nickel
1912-S 5C MS66 NGC. Non-silver, non-gold coinage was the
exclusive purview of the main Mint in Philadelphia until the 20th
century. The first branch mint minors were the 1908-S Indian cents.
Denver joined in with the 1911-D Lincoln cent, while both Mints
made their five-cent nickel debut in 1912, final official year of
the Liberty nickel design.
Lustrous and Distinctly Toned
This is an exquisitely preserved and conditionally rare Premium Gem survivor from the San Francisco issue, a noted key date with a mintage of only 238,000 pieces. The strike is typically soft on the left ear of corn but the stars have better detail. Toning is blue-to-violet at the margins with gold-to-peach interiors.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 277R, PCGS# 3875)
Weight: 5.00 grams
Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
