1891 Liberty Nickel, Choice Almost Uncirculated

129.00

An original AU/Unc coin, typical of those saved randomly by the general public, the real source of most high grade Liberty Nickels. This would have been put away immediately after initial release, probably as an example of the first coin of the new date spotted by who ever pulled it from circulation. Most dealers would sell this as new, and many could not tell that it is not strictly Uncirculated (unfortunately). This might still certify as a low end Unc in the 60/61 range anyway, which says something about "commercial grading". Regardless, a scarcer date in my experience and scarce in Choice Unc (regardless of what Coinfacts has to say about the topic). This has nice original color, maybe a couple of light stains from decades spent in a box or can of other coins.
