My submission. Roll from Glenn Antrim. Best of about 6 ms67rd's I got graded. One of my nicest bronze Lincolns period. Looks ms68rd. Picture doesn't do it justice.

Ex Just Having Fun Collection. Purchased from Wondercoin and best of the two JHF owned. Definitely one of the top 2 1981-p nickels known. Only about 50 are known with full steps in any grade!

Ex DRG Collection. Purchased from James Sego Rare Coins. The 1981 Susan B Anthony Dollars were included in mint sets only. The S's had to be shipped to Denver to be included in the Denver packet. A bumpy road along the way possibly contributed to these coins getting much more banged up than the P and D counterparts. It's estimated that it takes 1500-2000 mint sets to find an ms66, probably 100 times that to find an ms67. And the coins out of the 3 coin SBA mint sets are usually even worse. This coin is a freak for the date with booming luster and well hidden flaws. It was originally found by clad coin expert Rob Anglemier, then owned by DRG and then Murphy.
