Lot Description
1941 5C PR68 PCGS. This date from the earliest sub-series of proof Jefferson nickels, which spans from the design's debut in 1938 to the "war nickel" proofs of 1942, has a number of challenging dates for high-end Registry collectors. The 1941 in particular proves elusive at the top grade level, PR68, as PCGS has certified only three coins at that level and none finer (11/10). This beauty is one of the three, boldly impressed with potent reflectivity that shines through layers of rich patina. Nickel-white to gold colors are prominent at the centers, while the margins show more peach and pink hues. From The Alex and Nan Proof Jefferson Nickel Collection.
