Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1905 Liberty Head Nickel is typical of the high-mintage dates of the 1900s.  It is a very common coin across all grades up to and including MS66.  The finest examples certified by PCGS include two in MS66+.  Strike quality is sometimes an issue, but as can be seen on the images above, eye appeal often trumps.  Look for coins with booming luster and attractive color -- these seem to get the best grades and the highest prices.
