Ron Guth: The 1893 Liberty Head Nickel is one of a cluster of dates from 1887-1893 inclusive that all have similar mintmarks and survival rates. All are highly collectible, easily obtained, and often come with beautiful luster and eye appeal. However, unlike the others, this is a date that is very difficult to locate with all of the stars fully struck AND with a full ear of corn on the lower left reverse.
At the top end of the condition ladder, PCGS has certified over two dozen MS66s and a single PCGS MS67.
