Lot Description
1914-D 5C MS67 NGC. CAC. The 1914-D nickel can be located through the near-Gem level of preservation. Full Gem examples are available with some patience and searching. Premium Gems are quite scarce, and this issue is rare in Superb Gem. Anything finer is virtually unobtainable. This MS67 specimen displays pleasing luster and nickel-gray patina with subtle champagne-gold undertones. A well executed leaves strong definition on the design elements, including the central areas that are characteristically weak. The surfaces are devoid of mentionable contacts or spots, and the planchet quality is excellent. This latter point is significant, for as David Lange (2006) writes: "The Denver Mint frequently used dies long after they became worn, and both flowlines and cracks are typical of its products from the mid-1910s through the mid-1920s." Census: 2 in 67, 0 finer (8/12).
