    1936 Type Two Nickel, PR68
    Brilliant Proof Finish

    1936 5C Type Two -- Brilliant Finish PR68 NGC. While we have offered many attractive, flashy 1936 Type Two nickels, very seldom do we encounter an example in the virtually unsurpassable MS68 grade. The surfaces are essentially flawless, with a pinpoint sharp strike on the the hair, knot, and braid. The bison displays intricate detail from head to tail. Brilliant, glassy fields project a mere hint of pale gold toning intermingled with the silver brilliance. PCGS reports a single finer coin, and NGC has yet to see one finer than the current Superb Gem. Census: 19 in 68, 0 finer (6/15).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 278Y, PCGS# 3995)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
