Ron Guth: The 1875 Three-Cent Nickel is a relatively common date and it represents a nice, affordable example for the type.  Mint State examples are relatively common, even in Gem condition.  PCGS has certified 16 MS-66s (as of January 2012), but only two in MS-67, and none finer.

Keep an eye out for the interesting variety that shows the top serif of  misplaced 1 sticking out from Liberty's neck (FS-301).
