Purchased a lot of five cent cigars?
Ron Guth: The 1896 Liberty Head Nickel is similar in many respects to the 1895: similar mintages, nearly identical populations of certified examples, similar grade distributions, eerily close pricing, and twinnish grade distributions. Collectors will have no trouble finding a nice Uncirculated example, though fully struck examples can be elusive. None have been certified above MS66 by PCGS.
