    1901 Nickel, Toned MS67+
    Tied Atop of the Condition Census

    1901 5C MS67+ PCGS. CAC. The 1901 Liberty nickel is a popular date among type collectors, and this piece is tied with just only other MS67+ coin for the finest certified (both PCGS). Luster is softly frosted and luminous, yielding near-perfect preservation and delicate rainbow toning. The corn ear to the left of the wreath bow is slightly weak as usual, as are the stars above Liberty's head, but the exceptional quality of the surfaces produces unsurpassed visual appeal for the issue. Any 1901 nickel in Superb Gem condition is a rarity. This piece is the finest obtainable. Population: 9 in 67 (2 in 67+), 0 finer. CAC: 5 in 67, 0 finer (7/21).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 277C, PCGS# 3862)

    Weight: 5.00 grams
