Lot Description
1885 5C MS63 PCGS. This is a steel-gray example of this date, minted in the extent of less than 1.5 million pieces and by far the key to the Liberty nickel series. This is an exceedingly sharp strike, made even more appealing by the numerous die cracks appearing on each side. A heavy, branching crack through (CEN)TS is about ready to form a retained cud. Scattered tiny dark flecks appear under a loupe.
