Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1911 Liberty Head Nickel has the largest mintage of any date in the series, and the largest Nickel mintage of the 1866-1916 time period.  As a result, this date is available by the hundreds across the entire grade range from MS62 to MS66.  At the top of the condition ladder are a pair of PCGS MS67s. 

The 1911 Nickel usually shows weakness on the stars on the upper obverse, but fully struck examples can also be found with a little bit of hunting.  Because there are lots of coins to choose from, the collector is advised to wait for just the right piece.
