Lot Description
1885 5C AU58 NGC. The 1885 Liberty Head nickel has long been known as the key to the series. The present coin is an attractive near-Mint specimen with sharp striking details throughout. The centers on the obverse stars are plainly defined, a problem area on many examples. The bright, light rose surfaces show only the slightest wear on the high points of the design. From The Donald R. Frederick Collection of Early U.S. Coinage: Bayside Part II.
