1888 Liberty Nickel, Gem BU, PCGS MS-65

899.00

An attractive lightly toned Gem in an older PCGS light blue label holder. The only mark of note is right in front of Liberty's ear, the high point on the coin, with one tiny old spot directly above, otherwise very clean. The Obverse die was a little old and shows a fine die cracks around the stars, with some die erosion creating a "crackled" looking surface, but not to the point of being unattractive. This is certainly made up for by bright luster and light russet highlights over original honey gold surfaces. Scarce in Gem grades mainly due to typically indifferent strikes (this is better than most) and a lack of saving at the time of issue.
