Ron Guth: The 1910 Liberty Head Nickel is a very common date due to a large mintage of just over 30 million coins.  In mid-range Uncirculated grades, this date is available by the hundreds.  Superb coins number just over a dozen, with the finest being a single PCGS MS67 (one of the few dates from the first decade of the 1900's available in that grade).

Judging by the amount of detail on the ear of corn on the left side of the reverse, the 1910 Nickel is one of the best struck of the series.  However, this date occasionally comes with weakness on some of the obverse stars.
