Nickel was a new metal for the Mint and its hardness gave them fits.
I'll echo Kanga post good luck putting this set together as stated above the later years mintages are in the 1000, not tens of thousands.
Just like half dimes 64 thru 69 P mints try and find a1867 that you didn't need to sell a kidney for to afford.
I will admit I do collect these ,I have just excepted the fact that my set will never be complete,but the series does have some nice varieties.
You two are well versed in the nickel lll what rpd would you tag this one an 001 or 002? Can you see the entire 5 in the denticals and under the 5 .
I only have one nickel 3-cent; it's for my type set.
It's a PCGS MS-65.
I selected it over a -66 because the ribs on the "III" were more fully struck.
I had to use my 10x loupe to see just a touch of flattening at the tops of the ribs.
I researched the set before I decided to go with these. I may not be able to get them all but it'll be fun trying. Thanks!!
That's the spirit, a true collector!
Thats a beautiful coin!!
@Santinidollar One if the best examples I've ever seen!
yes they do and that's one of the main factors I'll probably never start this series unless I hit the lotto. The 1885 and 1887 alone in just g4 will set you back 12-18 hundred dollars ...youch!
