    1941 Jefferson Nickel, PR68
    Only Three Coins in PR68, None Finer at PCGS

    1941 5C PR68 PCGS. CAC. The Philadelphia Mint produced 18,720 proof sets in 1941, and most of the nickel coins were sharply struck, attractive examples. That being said, few specimens can match the quality of this magnificent PR68 Jefferson nickel. Some nickel proofs of this date display planchet roughness on the portrait, but this specimen shows smooth surfaces throughout. The design elements exhibit razor-sharp definition, including the six full steps on Monticello. Perhaps the most appealing aspect of this coin is the vivid, iridescent toning that mingles shades of ice-blue, pale green, and violet in a fascinating visual treat. Population: 3 in 68, 0 finer (4/11).(Registry values: N991)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27A2, PCGS# 4178)

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
