The three cent nickel is a popular 19th century set, but most sets are put together in proof, with the business strikes being somewhat overlooked. This set is a great challenge, as there are numerous problems with poor strikes, subdued luster, heavily clashed dies and other negative characteristics. A complete set of gem quality is a challenge, indeed!
