Lot Description
1885 5C MS62 NGC. The 1885 had the second-lowest mintage in the "V" nickel series, but it is actually the rarest issue. A lilac tint graces the surfaces of the present coin, with some deeper toning spots peppered on both sides. The obverse has a number of prominent die cracks, particularly one from star 4 through Liberty's hair to star 8. Several small marks are consistent with the grade.
