Description

    1913 Type Two Nickel, PR66
    Beautifully Toned

    1913 5C Type Two PR66 PCGS. A melange of orange-gold, forest-green, lavender, and violet toning cascades over both sides of this matte proof Premium Gem Type Two Buffalo nickel. The design elements are sharply defined, befitting a proof strike. This piece has been well-cared for. Housed in a green label holder.

    Population Data (8/15): PCGS reports 98 Type Two proofs in Premium Gem, including three in PR66+, and 61 coins finer. NGC shows 76 Premium Gem examples and 41 finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The Type Two proof saw a mintage of 1,514, just slightly lower than its Type One proof counterpart. Most of the Type Two examples are in the near-Gem to Premium Gem range. Both Type One and Two proofs are popular with type collectors, though the Type Two commands a somewhat lower price than the one-year-only Type One.
