Ron Guth: 1900 was another large-mintage year for Liberty Head Nickel. This time, the mintage was 1.2 million coins more than the previous year.  As a result, this date is very common in grades all the way up to MS67, where only a small handful of examples have been certified by PCGS. 

Most examples are well sturkc, though some may show weakness on a few (and sometimes all) stars.
