    My favorite is this 1964 proof which has an amazing glow to it and is turning a beautiful colour

    I have a soft-spot for my 1913-S (Variety 2) - not the prettiest nickel, but she'll do for now.

    And, I love the rainbow toning on my 1927-S...keeps getting better and better every year.

    I like the "train" nickels. I may have to start lurking about on eBay.

    My favorite is the 1942-P war nickel in Proof followed by the 1936 Buffalo Nickel in Satin Proof. The latter coin presents the Buffalo Nickel design in its best light in my opinion.

    @Lehigh96 When I look up that coin on NGC, how come it says "Deleted" for the NGC Grade?
