Lot Description
1913 5C Type Two MS67 NGC. The general public paid little attention to the design change in 1913, and the Type Two nickels were not saved as novelties in the same numbers as the Type One coins were. As a result, the Type Two nickels are far scarcer across the board than their Type One counterparts; this is especially noticeable in the numbers of Gem and finer coins certified. This extraordinary Type Two has fully defined centers. The bright mint frost is overlaid with pale blue and golden-rose toning, and as expected from the grade there are no noticeable abrasions. Census: 7 in 67, 0 finer (11/11). From The Teton Ranch Collection.
