Essentially Perfect PR68 1914 Matte Proof Nickel1914 5C PR68 PCGS. The 1914 matte proof nickels were well-produced and made in relatively large numbers with 1,275 pieces minted. The granular texture of the matte finish is certainly evident on this piece, and the satin surface is also abundantly evident, even through the toning. Each side has a small pinkish center that quickly turns ice-blue before showing an iridescent quality around the margins. Even though a relatively large number of proofs were produced in this second year, few are known in the ultimate grade of PR68. Only 18 coins have been certified in this grade by both PCGS and NGC, with even numbers at each service. None have been graded finer (3/09).
