Popular key date.
Weak reverse, mintmark, and motto. A popular variety.
Fresh from an original roll.
Underrated date with trace mint red remaining!
Wonderful luster and only a whisper of color. Only 16 finer at PCGS, all of which are 67+.
Very desirable, key proof-only issue from a mintage of just 510 coins. A choice example with great reflectivity! Housed in an older generation NGC holder.
Better date Shield nickel. Incredible luster with light gold toning and no heavy hits or distracting bag marks.
Mintage of only 1,000 coins in proof.
Mintage of just 1,100 proofs struck.
The 1886 is one of the primary key dates in the V-Nickel set.
Popular Liberty nickel type coin.
First year of with-cents type. Mintage of 6,783 coins in proof format.
A well struck and dynamically lustrous gem example. Natural toning adds to the appeal.
Attractive toning and glassy luster create excellent eye appeal. A weak strike is the only downside.
Dynamic luster seems to be constantly moving, even as the coin is held steady in-hand. No flaws and a hard strike. An easy decision for CAC.
Less than 20 finer known examples, yet NONE of them are CAC approved, making this certainly one of the very finest known.
