Lot Description
1885 5C AU58 NGC. Liberty Head nickels have been a popular by date collectors since the advent of collecting boards in the 1930s. Coins dated 1885, 1886, and 1912-S are considered key. Though several hundred 1885s have been certified by NGC and PCGS at all grades, this near-Mint State coin is at the intersection of desirability and affordability, graded higher than about 45% of the certified coins but at a price typically half that of near-Gem examples. Even gray-olive toning covers each side of this well-detailed, lustrous key. From The Jerry Kochel Collection.
