    1896 Liberty Nickel, PR67 Cameo
    Top-Grade Registry Coin

    1896 5C PR67 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The 1896 proof is conditionally rare at the Superb Gem level, especially with cameo contrast. This piece is tied with three others as the finest Cameo at PCGS, and only a single PR67 Deep Cameo coin is arguably finer at that service. Essentially brilliant surfaces yield full design sharpness and appreciable contrast. The preservation is virtually flawless. Population: 4 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer; 1 in 67 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (4/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2786, PCGS# 83894)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
