Many of the coins in this set are found with a frosty appearance that is more characteristic of a business strike than a proof, but that's the way of nickel coinage in the 1870s and 1880s. Deeply reflective or frosty, this series is composed of an attractive and historic coin and that means popularity. The two toughies here will be the Proof-only dates of 1877 and 1878.

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
