Lot Description
1885 5C MS64 PCGS. CAC. This exceptional near-Gem must represent one of the best values in an 1885 nickel we have seen in recent years. Essentially abrasion-free surfaces provide instant appeal. Satiny mint luster radiates from each side, complementing light gray and golden patina. The reverse displays faint streakiness from the planchet, presumably the reason for the MS64 grade. The complete strike creates bold detail throughout, even on the left ear of corn on the reverse.
